Alumni #2

Explain why you believe this individual should be inducted into the Interboro Hall of Fame. Include significant accomplishments of the nominee.

 

As a graduate of IHS, Alumni #2 went on to further her education becoming a RN, while working at Christiana Hospital for a couple of years she decided to further her education once again, becoming a PA.(Physician Assistant).  In her travels she went to Africa one year, realizing that hospitals didn’t have power, didn’t have the resources we have here in America, she helped form a group of physicians and colleagues to bring power and resources to The Gambia… below is clips from an article… Alumni #2, a physicians’ assistant at Christiana, and Thinesh Dahanayake, MD, a 5th year EM resident, were seeking medical outreach opportunities in Africa when Alumni #2 saw a newspaper article about a Delaware-based non-profit, Power Up Gambia, that was started to provide electricity for an African hospital. She joined the board of Power Up Gambia and mentioned the project to an ED co-worker, Dr. Thompson. Together, the trio traveled to Bwiam.  In the beginning, it was really a fact-finding mission,” Alumni #2 said. But after one visit it was clear that they would be going back.  “I wanted to do everything I could to help,” said Thompson.  After the trip she told Alumni #2 that she was in it for the long haul. The result was Del-Med Aid for Gambia, a nonprofit dedicated to supplying medical volunteers and aid for SJGH.  While they found a determined and committed hospital administrator and nursing staff, there was no permanent medical staff.  “The Gambia didn’t have its own medical school until a couple of years ago,” said Thompson. “They’ve only graduated one class.” The Gambia has four hospitals and is dependent upon international physicians; SJGH has three internists and a surgeon, international staff who may stay two or three years. The local nursing staff is the backbone of health care for The Gambia. Alumni #2 has made numerous trips to The Gambia, they have raised funds to install solar panels and brought electricity to a local hospital. She has also sent much needed up to date equipment to help the locals.

Explain why you believe this individual should be inducted into the Interboro Hall of Fame. Include significant accomplishments of the nominee.

 

Alumni #5 should be inducted into the Interboro Hall of Fame because of his immense pride, service, and dedication to the Interboro School District and community both as a student and resident. Throughout his entire life Alumni #5 has dedicated his time and money to ensure the students of the Interboro School District and community have appropriate resources they need to excel socially, emotionally, and academically.  Alumni #5 grew up in Prospect Park and attended the Kindergarten Academy and Prospect Park School. While a student at Prospect Park School Alumni #5 volunteered many hours helping with home and school activities. These activities include helping with bingo nights, book fair, and Santa secret workshops. He also helped his father every summer with Glenolden’s Fourth of July Festivities. He would work the concession stands, sell raffle items and do whatever was necessary for success. Although these may sound trivial, Alumni #5 learned early on the impact of service. The academic and social effects of this service were felt by hundreds of students during his time at Prospect Park School and the Interboro Community.  Alumni #5 also attended Interboro High School. During his years at Interboro he was involved in many activities such as soccer, class congress, student council, and Spanish club. He played an integral part of brining the Pennsylvania Association of Student Council’s Region F Conference to Interboro High School and he helped fundraiser and donate the sign that illuminates Amosland Road. Like his time at Prospect Park School, Alumni #5 spent countless hours creating a culture and climate at the high school that benefited the students academically and socially.  Upon graduation Alumni #5 went to work for his father and continued his service to Interboro School District and the community. Alumni #5 provided many services to the Interboro School District such as emergency tree removal, sewage cleanup and any other service that he was called on to complete. When Interboro called, Alumni #5 was there with a smile on his face and ready to work.  Alumni #5 became a resident of Norwood and began raising a son. And just as his parents did for him he began to teach his son the importance of service, pride and dedication to his community. He spent countless hours putting together the jungle gym at Norwood School. He bought new basketball nets and installed them on the Norwood playground. He put together bleachers for various youth clubs. He donated money to teacher crowdsourcing campaigns. He volunteered his time with Norwood Youth Club. He still helped with Glenolden’s Fourth of July festivities. The social and emotional effects of this service and dedication to the Interboro School District and community cannot be quantified but is sure to have left an impact on thousands of students.  No, Alumni #5 did not win any awards or honors. No, Alumni #5 did not become someone famous. But, Alumni #5 has undoubtedly impacted thousands of Interboro students without them even knowing. That is the true testament of a legacy. Alumni #5 legacy will be that of PRIDE, SERVICE, and DEDICATION to the students and residents of the Interboro School District.

Alumni #8

​Explain why you believe this individual should be inducted into the Interboro Hall of Fame. Include significant accomplishments of the nominee.

 

Let's start at the beginning and turn the clock way back to 1980s when our Interboro days first began. But let’s go back even further to Elementary school… Since the beginning Alumni #8 has always been an advocate.  Her enthusiastic nature was just what The class needed. Not only was she our class president for 3 years but she systematically organized nearly every social and political class event during our 4 years at Interboro.  In addition to being out class president Alumni #8 was actively involved in class congress where Alumni #8 worked closely with Searle Noble our BELOVED class advisor to organize community outreach projects and class activities. Alumni #8's enthusiasm for all things Interboro was contagious.  In addition to countless spirit activities, dances and class events, Alumni #8 headed up the senior refreshment stand and gathered a team of eager classmates including myself.  She cleverly put together a Homecoming Float committee which also included myself (are you sensing a pattern here), and collectively we presented a class float that we will ALL remember fondly for years to come.  Alumni #8 she set up and organized  our EPIC class PROM, secured the venue, hired the DJ and videographer   (which no one appreciated till now over 33 years later where she posts them on social media for hilarity). The vivid memories speak of a night filled with magic and true Interboro PRIDE!  And finally our graduation day where Alumni #8 gave a heartfelt and impassion speech filled with fun memories and encouragement For everyone.  It truly was a wonderful time in our lives. After graduation Alumni #8 continued to be actively involved with our class by organizing class reunions every 5 years without exception. Each reunion drawing nearly our entire class.  So far we have had 6 Class reunions spanning over 30 years. Currently, Alumni #8 continues to be an advocate for Interboro’s class through social media where she manages our Alumni Facebook page.  Alumni #8 has an almost 'super shero' pulse on our class and is always ready to update everyone on our classmates and other BUC alumni.  For Alumni #8 if you went to Interboro YOU ARE FAMILY forever. I know I speak for many when I say with all my heart that I cannot think of anyone more deserving of an INTERBORO ALUMNI award than Alumni #8.  Her sheer passion and commitment to our school and our class is truly a blessing to us ALL.  Thank you for your consideration of this submission. And, that is my story and I am sticking to it.    God Bless you all.    Thank you

 

Alumni #9

Explain why you believe this individual should be inducted into the Interboro Hall of Fame. Include significant accomplishments of the nominee. 

 

I would like to nominate Alumni #9 for the Interboro Hall of Fame as either alumni, community member or both. Alumni #9 graduated from Interboro High School having been active with AFS, Honor Society, and various clubs.  Shortly after graduation she enlisted in the U.S. Army, serving from 1977 to 1979.  This service provided her with much worldly knowledge and she was primarily stationed in Hawaii. Having lived in Norwood, PA. her entire school life, she was raised with her 2 brothers, also Interboro graduates.  After her marriage, again, a graduate of Interboro, they moved to Tinicum, where they still reside.  They had two fine children, who both also graduated from Interboro, keeping it all in the district.  Alumni #9 has been active in the annual Norwood Fourth of July celebration since 1975 and she participates in fundraising events for that event.  Examples of her activities are the Halloween Haunted Park, bake sales, etc. that earn funds to perpetuate the event every year.  She and her husband also put a lot of physical energy into making that event the success it is.  In Tinicum, she has been part of the Dive Team, working on statistics and logistics, when her daughter was on the team beginning in 2003. Her daughter has gone on to coach at the Tinicum pool. Alumni #9 was a "cookie mom" for the Girl Scouts, as well as being an assistant leader.  For her son, she was both assistant and a leader for the Cub Scouts.  She was also on the 8th grade and prom committees for the classes of both students.  Also, Alumni #9 now serves as treasurer of the Tinicum Township Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary. I have known Alumni #9 since junior high and she is ever busy in the community, currently serving on the board of the Tinicum Swimming Pool. She is also very active in pool events. We were co-chairs of the 41st reunion. We remain close friends, and I can attest to her industrious nature and her devotion to the Interboro School District.  She is truly deserving to be a member of the Interboro Hall of Fame. 

 

Alumni #10

While others run from danger Alumni #10 runs towards it to keep each & everyone of us safe. I believe Alumni #10 is an exceptional role model for the youth of today to look up to. He is a young man who gives everything everyday to others. Our students need to see they don't have to be an older person to make a difference. They can be the difference everyday like Alumni #10.

Alumni #13

Explain why you believe this individual should be inducted into the Interboro Hall of Fame. Include significant accomplishments of the nominee.

 

When I think of the inductees to the Interboro Hall of Fame, I see past the individuals pictured on the plaque, and know that there are countless community members and generations of families whose lives will forever be touched, due to quietly dedicated years of service that the inductee provided in honor of them. Choosing to sacrifice time with family and friends, clocking in countless hours in every stage of development, from idea inception to actualization. All the while, doing so without any attachment to recognition or external validation, outside of witnessing their fellow neighbors lives improved, and a welcomed handshake from those they serve tirelessly. I have a deep awareness of all that goes into doing such work, because I was lucky enough to be raised by a man whose core values are in direct alignment with this beautiful display of humanity. With the unending support of my mother, my father has been able to run a highly respected second generation family business, while simultaneously clocking in full-time hours for his hometown for the past 30 years. Alumni #13 has been an elected official (5th ward commisioner) since 2007; but his service to Tinicum Township where he was born and raised, and raised his own three children, began 17 years prior. He coached every team my siblings and I were a part of, and continued to do so long after our youth sports years came to a close. He went on to become President of the Rec board, a chairman of the Zoning Hearing Board, and the first name everyone thought of when they had a question about anything township related. Our home phone would ring with questions about sign-up dates and construction zoning questions, long before cell phones were available. All-Star games and Fourth of July festivities would become lifelong memories for all involved, in part because of the long hours Alumni #13 would put into making those events spectacular. To this day, if you drive past the event spaces the night before, you will see my father, still in his work clothes, stringing banners and hanging lights long after the sun has gone down, all for the deserving members of his community, young and old to feel valued. When the Philadelphia Airport attempted to encroach on residential property and threatened the quality of life for Tinicum residents, Alumni #13 knew that he had to elevate his involvement with Township affairs. He ran and was elected to office as the commissioner to the 5th ward of Tinicum Township and immediately went to work for his fellow community members. The hours were long, the negotiations were exhausting, and at times extremely frustrating, but at the end of the day, the intention of preserving and improving the livelihood of those living in Tinicum Township, proved to be a success. Tinicum had to make a few concessions to the airport, but it was an absolute priority of Alumni #13 and his fellow commissioners to ensure that the rewards would far outweigh every sacrifice they had to make at the negotiation table. Since then, all you have to do is drive around Tinicum to see the actualizations of the promises made to the members of this community. From the 291 Beautification Project, the Veterans Memorial Garden, the stunning renovations of Governor Printz Park, and countless programs and activities that have now become staples of the events calendar, the landscape of Tinicum Township is changing and all would agree it is for the better. My father would be the first to point out all of those who have helped turn all of these ideas into reality, but for the sake of this essay, I want to highlight that all of these projects were at one point just a part of his creative imagination. He has spent hours walking our family dog along the streets and public spaces of our hometown, and has envisioned the potential that they possessed. He would come home, draft a mock-up of what he saw in his minds eye, and would only bring it to the appropriate boards after working out all of the kinks and ensuring that it would in fact be a possibility. He does all of this with the intention to provide the same quality of life that he wishes for his own family, and to bring that to his beloved Tinicum residents. One of his most well known projects is the Tinicum Farmers Market, that runs from the beginning of summer into the first few weeks of autumn. This weekly event brings food and specialty goods vendors, live entertainment, and family fun to the beautiful waterfront of Essington. The Health Fair has also become a yearly staple, providing the community members with flu shots, medical information, local vendors, and a 5k. All of the proceeds from this event as well as the farmers market goes back into the pockets of those who are fighting cancer within the community. These events and projects are truly just scratching the surface of all that Alumni #13 has done and will continue to do for the town he loves. It is his dream to cultivate an environment that not only encourages residents to stay, but that brings in new residents who will feel a deep sense of pride for where they live and raise their children. Alumni #13 is a dedicated husband and father, a relentless public servant, and a visionary. He has dedicated his life to cultivating the full potential of the area in which he lives, with the full understanding of how that will then encourage the individuals living their to reach their own full potential. He is the first person that I and so many others, call in a time of need, knowing without a shadow of a doubt that he will be there and do whatever is in his power to help. He is a man that has consistently made his parents proud, who has honored and elevated his families name, and who I am profoundly proud to call my father. I know that receiving this honor from his alma-mater will be humbling, and will likely be met with complete surprise, due to his endearing inability to see how incredible his own reach truly is. I sincerely hope that you consider him for the Interboro Alumni Hall of Fame Nominations, and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to nominate him. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
