The Spartan Hall of Fame will induct seven new members at its Hall of Fame Banquet and Fundraiser April 30. Over the next few days, The Daily will provide a look at the inductees—from their CWRU accomplishments to where they are today.

Steve Cullen (CWR ’95) is one of the most accomplished student-athletes in the decorated history of CWRU cross country and track & field. The Wooster-native was a two-time NCAA cross country All-American, placing 16th in the nation in 1993 and 19th in 1994. He also earned GTE/CoSIDA second-team Academic All-American honors in 1995. As a cross country sophomore in 1993, Cullen placed first at the North Coast Athletic Conference Championship meet and the Spartans won the team title under legendary head coach Bill Sudeck. In 1994, he placed second in the 5,000-meter run as the Spartans were outdoor track & field champions of the NCAC and co-champions of the University Athletic Association. In 1995, Cullen won the 5,000m run and placed second in the 10,000 meters as the Spartans were outdoor track & field champions of the NCAC and co-champions of the University Athletic Association. Cullen was an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Award winner in 1995 and was named to the NCAC 20-year Anniversary Cross Country team in 2004.

Cullen is currently a family doctor in Medina. He and his wife, Laurie, have been married for 15 years. They have two children, Emily and Will. For more information on the banquet or to buy tickets, go online.
