Sree N. Sreenath, will be inducted into the Cleveland International Hall of Fame (2019 edition)


On Tuesday, April 16th, Sree N. Sreenath will be inducted into the Cleveland International Hall of Fame in a dinner ceremony in the Grand Ballroom of the Marriott at Key Center downtown.

This is the 10th anniversary of the Cleveland International Hall of Fame and promises to be a special evening. Sree was selected from over 100 worthy nominees this year. It is an exclusive group. See the list of previous inductees at

Sree will be inducted by AIPNO Medical Yatra leader Ramesh Shah.

In addition, for the first time in the 10 year history of the Cleveland International Hall of Fame the invocation will be given by a Hindu priest. Sreedhara Sree, a priest at Shiva Vishnu Temple of Greater Cleveland, will give the invocation.

The Indian community is the only group to have an inductee in all 10 classes. We hope that members of the Indian community will attend and support Sree and the community. The event always sells out so order your tickets now.

Ch. 19 news anchor Chris Tanaka will be the MC for the evening. Each guest will receive a beautiful 52 page program book with photos and information from all 10 years of the Cleveland International Hall of Fame along with Sree’s bio and photo.

If you’ve been to earlier inductions you know what a grand event it is. If this will be your first, you are in for a wonderful evening. Ethnic dress is encouraged.

Networking/cash bar cocktails begins at 5PM and the Cleveland Fire Department Honor Guard will post the colors promptly at 6PM to begin the ceremony.
