On the evening of May 24, two-hundred and fourteen guests came together to celebrate the lifetime accomplishments of ten Distinguished Norwin Alumni, one Distinguished Friend of Norwin, and our graduating NAFA Scholarship recipient.
Those honored included William Caruthers, Esq. (1973), Hon. Mark Critz (1980), Dr. Constance DeMore (1991), Dr. Robin Dillon (1973), Dr. Heather Newell (1988), Mr. Dan Priatko (1980) and Mr. Rich Siniawski (1966). In addition, Mr. Casey Harper was honored as a Distinguished Friend of Norwin.
This Second Annual Knight of Distinguished Alumni Recognition Dinner was sponsored by the Duncan Financial Group and further supported by numerous businesses and individuals through congratulatory ads placed in the commemorative program booklet.
Following welcome messages from Dr. Jack Boylan (President, Norwin School District Community Foundation) and Mrs. Debbie Kunkle (President, Norwin Alumni and Friends Association), the honorees and guests enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner and dessert. Emcee Bo Garritano then introduced each honoree who was presented a plaque. Throughout the night, stories were told that crossed the decades and generations of Norwin alumni, and some of the most memorable lessons learned through a lifetime of effort were shared by our honorees.
The wall opposite the entrance to the Norwin High School Auditorium now holds a plaque to honor each of Norwin’s Distinguished Alumni.
