Description Wood and acrylic plaque commemorating Gloria Smith Corey of Westmoor High School and College of San Mateo who was inducted into the San Mateo County Sports Hall of Fame on June 21, 2007. Plaque includes image of Smith Corey and a brief biography: "You want the definition of a winner? Look no farther than Gloria Smith Corey. She did nothing but achieve victories during her career as a basketball player a generation ago. She helped her teams capture 5 championships in 5 years, beginning at Westmoor High School, then at College of San Mateo and, finally, at the University of San Francisco. A smooth, tough floor general, Smith was the first great point guard to emerge on the Peninsula after the passage of Title IX."
