Weldon Kern (April 30, 1923 – April 21, 2014) was an American basketball player. He won two national championships at Oklahoma A&M University and was later an early professional in the Professional Basketball League of America.
Kern, a 5'10 forward from Lawton, Oklahoma, attended Oklahoma A&M from 1944–46, winning championships as a starting forward for the Aggies in both 1945 and 1946 with future Hall of Fame teammate Bob Kurland. Kern was named first team All-Missouri Valley Conference in 1946, in a year when all five Aggie starters composed the all-conference first team.
Following the completion of his collegiate career, Kern signed with the Oklahoma City Drillers in the Professional Basketball League of America, a short-lived predecessor to the National Basketball Association.
Kern died on April 21, 2014 at the age of 90.
