About the Hall of Honors
The DeSales High School Hall of Honors was established in 1992 and became an annual ceremony in 2005. In 2010, DeSales began the "Hall of Honors Awards Dinner", an event that has featured an accomplished list of guest speakers over the years.
The designation of “Hall of Honors Inductee” is the highest distinction bestowed by DeSales. Members of the Hall of Honors have distinguished themselves and DeSales through their outstanding accomplishments, character, and commitment to the mission of DeSales High School.
In 2010, DeSales introduced three new awards: the Outstanding Service Award, recognizing an individual's extraordinary dedication to DeSales; the Young Alumnus Award, recognizing a graduate under the age of thirty; and the President's Award, recognizing an exemplary faculty member of DeSales High School.
Five individuals have also been selected for the “Lifetime Service Award", a special honor that recognizes individuals who have made an extraordinary commitment to the mission of DeSales.
