Description Plaque commemorating Pam Wimberly of Menlo-Atherton High School being inducted into the San Mateo County Sports Hall of Fame on May 18, 1993. Plaque includes image of Wimberly and a brief biography: "For Pam Wimberly, winning has never been the only thing that matters when it comes to high school athletics. The longtime girls' basketball coach at Menlo-Atherton High, she has won more games - 568 - than any female mentor in California. / At the South County school, her teams have captured 14 league varsity championships and four Central Coast Section titles. / But it is her off-the-court work that sets Wimberly apart. She has been a stickler for decorum and sportsmanship, and she has imparted those often-forgotten qualities to her student athletes through the years. / In 1992-93, she was named the Cental Coast Section girls' basketball honor coach of the year."
