The Hall of Fame, for the Pacers, has been around for years. To date, 108 individuals have been inducted into the Hall of Fame programs.
This years inductees include Brent Carson ‘66, Cliff Dochterman ‘43, Larry Eberst ‘73, Tony McCleery ‘45, Abigail Nims ‘97 and Joe DiGenova (Friend of the District Award).
Starting in 2013, the district combined the athletic, academic and performing arts Hall of Fame events into one large recognition event, which took place on September 26.
The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to properly recognize alumni who have made a major contribution to the success of those programs.
These graduates can be from Delaware High School, Willis High School and Hayes High School.
To become eligible to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, the alumni must have graduated at least 10 years before the induction. If it is a coach or an administrator being nominated, they must be inactive for 5 years.
Special Distinguished Service Awards are presented to coaches, employees and friends of the district who have accomplished a grand commitment to furthering the Delaware City Schools goals through great service.
These awards are given by the Board of Education and Delaware City Schools administration.
