The search is on for individuals to be considered for induction into the Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor. The nomination form is available online and submissions are accepted until February 11.
The Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor was established in 2005 by Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union and Delaware County Intermediate Unit to honor former participants who have distinguished themselves through their careers or community service.
The Hall of Honor also recognizes those educators and supporters of Delco Hi-Q who have made extraordinary contributions to the program. Inductees are honored at the annual Partners in Education Celebration on May 2nd at Drexelbrook. Members are also recognized with a plaque hanging in the Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor at Delaware County Intermediate Unit’s Education Service Center in Morton.
To be eligible for the distinction, past Delco Hi-Q team members must have taken part in at least one season of academic contests and have graduated from high school a minimum of seven years ago. Faculty advisers are eligible after at least one year of separation from Hi-Q. Also qualifying for consideration are educators and supporters who have made significant contributions to Delco Hi-Q during or after their affiliation with the program, with no time constraint.
Delco Hi-Q is a partnership between Delaware County Intermediate Unit (DCIU) and Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union Foundation. FMFCU Foundation Executive Director Rick Durante serves as Hi-Q Director and Quizmaster, FMFCU Corporate Social Responsibility Specialist Danielle Griffin is Hi-Q Assistant Director, and DCIU’s Dave Bramble is the production engineer. In addition to support from the 21 participating schools, Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union and the Wilbur C. and Betty Lea Henderson Foundation are the primary corporate sponsors. Additional support comes from longtime sponsor Kimberly-Clark Chester Operations and the Delaware County Daily Times.
