High School Report, January 3, 2013

The 2012 Hall of Fame class was inducted during halftime at the last home football game. The inductees were divided into three categories: academics, athletics, and school/community. This year’s honorees were: Phil Anderson (athletics), a three-sport athlete athlete who went on to play football at Delaware State University and played briefly with the Indianapolis Colts; Eric Hamilton (athletics), a distance runner who still holds the record for Dickinson’s home course and ran collegiately at Howard University; Patrick McKee (athletics), a football player and wrestler in high school who played on the offensive line for the University of Delaware’s 1982 national runner-up squad; Debra Roberts (academics), who earned a medical degree and a PhD in anatomy and neurobiology from Boston University; and Laura Dennis (school/community), a parent of two former students over eight years and chaired many parent organizations including the athletic boosters and the after-prom committee.

Two juniors were awarded with the Michael C. Ferguson Scholarship for excellence in DCAS testing from spring 2012 during their sophomore year. Mackenzie Strayer earned a $1000 scholarship for her results in reading and Wai Ho Tang earned a similar scholarship for mathematics.

Midterm examinations are approaching. Students will be attending half-days at taking two exams per day from Tuesday, January 15 to Friday, January 18.

The January meeting of the Dickinson Support Association will take place on Tuesday, January 22 at 7pm in the school library.
