Morton, PA – April 3, 2024 – Dr. Harry Jamison of Wallingford PA, a revered figure in education and a longtime supporter of Delco Hi-Q, has been honored with induction into the 2024 Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor. Dr. Jamison’s impactful leadership, spanning over 40 years, has left an indelible mark on education in Delaware County and beyond.
Beginning his career as a dedicated sixth-grade Ridley School District teacher in 1963, Dr. Jamison’s journey led him to become the Executive Director of Delaware County Intermediate Unit (DCIU), where he championed innovative programs benefiting children across the region. Notably, his instrumental role in sustaining Delco Hi-Q post Scott Paper merger in the 1990’s and his advocacy for academic excellence through initiatives like the Daily Times All Delco Hi-Q Team and the first Partners in Education Celebration with Alex Trebek underscore his commitment to the program’s success.
Dr. Jamison’s legacy includes the establishment of transformative educational initiatives such as the county-wide fiber optic network for educators and collaborative programs like the Delaware County Extended School Year/Summer Camp Program. His contributions also extend to founding the 21st Century Cyber Charter School, further demonstrating his dedication to providing diverse educational opportunities for students.
Dr. Jamison’s exemplary career has garnered recognition through several prestigious awards including the Dr. Regina Fitti Award, the March of Dimes 1st Lifetime Achievement Award, Interboro Hall of Fame, and the Delaware County District Attorney’s Award of Excellence. Since his retirement from DCIU, he has continued to serve his community as a consultant and in leadership roles on multiple organizations’ boards of directors and remained an active supporter of Delco Hi-Q.
“Dr. Jamison’s unwavering commitment to Delco Hi-Q and his tireless advocacy for academic excellence have made an enduring impact on our program and the students it serves. His induction into the Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor is a well-deserved recognition of his remarkable contributions,” said Rick Durante, Delco Hi-Q Executive Director.
The Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor was created in 2005 by Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union and DCIU to showcase esteemed supporters and past participants of the nation’s oldest continuous academic quiz competition. Members are memorialized at DCIU’s Morton headquarters where photos of all recipients are on display.
Dr. Harry Jamison, Delco Hi-Q Teams, scholarship recipients, Community Champion, and the FMFCU Foundation Excellence in Teaching recipients will be honored at the FMFCU Foundation Celebration scheduled for April 25, 2024 at The Drexelbrook.
