In the early 1980’s the idea for a “Hall of Honor” came up at a CHS parent meeting. The Class of 1963 provided seed money to establish the Hall in 1989. DHS/CHS graduates and school personnel serve on the Board of Directors. In 1989 the first honorees were inducted.
The Hall of Honor is funded privately. Donations have been received from class reunion committees, individuals, community organizations and businesses.
Nomination and Selection
Anyone may nominate a graduate of Davenport or Central High School for this honor. Forms are available at the high school office. Nominees must have achieved distinction in their careers and/or through public/community service. They may be seen as admirable role models, especially for students.
Inductees, their family and friends are welcomed at Central High School by faculty and students for an awards ceremony. A reception and dinner followed by an induction program are held for the inductees in the evening.
The Hall itself is found in the East Foyer of the Orville Kahler Auditorium at Central High School. Here, engraved plaques containing a picture and descriptive text are on permanent display. Students and friends have an opportunity to appreciate those whose exemplary lives bear testimony to the high quality of education at DHS/CHS.
