Ray Inge, Vice President of Human Resources at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC), and a former football star at Webster Groves High School was recently inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame for his team’s success in the 1969, 1970 and 1971 football seasons. The “Bulldogs" of Northeast Missouri State University (NMSU), now Truman State University won three straight Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) Championships. To date, the Bulldogs of the 1969, 1970 and 1971 seasons have the university's record for most wins.
Inge was a football standout during his high school days at Webster Groves (Missouri) High School. As a high school senior, Inge was offered athletic scholarships from several universities for both football and track & field. Inge opted to attend Northeast Missouri State University in part because of its history of successful athletic achievements.
Inge credits his success to his parents Elzie and Mae Alice Inge, lifetime residence of Webster Groves and family for instilling a strong work ethic and the values of education. Another key factor to his career outlook was playing both offensive running back and defensive corner back as a “Bulldog”, "I learned to be a team player, and my offensive training enabled me to be a quick thinker and to seize the opportunity. The defensive aspect has enabled me to be patient and to size up the entire playing field."
Inge graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Sociology from NMSU in 1975 and has a Masters Degree in Management from the University of Redlands. He has been employed at PVHMC for the past six years and has held previous executive positions with California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly, Pomona) and Los Angeles County MTA (Metro). Ray and his family are current residents of Diamond Bar, California.
