The original Hall of Fame had two divisions, athletic and academic, with the term "professional" added to the academic category at a later date. The initial class of honorees was inducted in the fall of 1996. The academic division honored Doctor Leo F. Black and Warner Depuy. Among Doctor Black's many achievements was Chairmanship of the Board of Governors for the Mayo Clinic. Mr. Depuy's accomplishments included his service as Pennsylvania Secretary of Revenue and Chairman of the Susquehanna River Basin Commission for the Reagan Administration. The athletic honorees were Susan Lapriore Schultz and Ray Wagner. Susan starred on the state champion 1978 field hockey team and went on to excel on the Division 1 level at Davis and Elkins College. Ray was a legendary wrestler at Delaware Valley and continued his career at Kent State University. He later played professional football for the Cincinnati Bengals and the Denver Gold.
New classes of inductees have entered the Hall of Fame in ensuing years. Currently more than forty people share in this honor. Plaques for the members are on display on the Hall of Fame wall at Delaware Valley High School. They may also be found on the school district website by choosing the alumni link. The Hall of Fame Committee encourages input from the community on information of potential nominees. Suggestions may be made directly to committee members or by contacting Wanda Holtzer at Delaware Valley High School, phone number 570-296-1864.
