Wall of Honor

A Del Mar College "Wall of Honor" will be unveiled at the college during a special ceremony Saturday at 7:15 p.m., reports Gene B. Davis, chairman of a special recognition subcommittee of the Del Mar College Former Students Association.

"The college has had a form of recognition since its inception with the Hall of Fame to honor outstanding students during their studies at the college," Davis said.

"Now in recognition of the college's 60th anniversary, the former students are initiating a permanent way to recognize former students who have distinguished themselves since leaving the college," Davis explained.

Six persons, whose names will not be announced until the evening of the presentation, will be honored. They will include a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, a State Supreme Court justice, a U.S. congressman, a former church chancellor and a retired college administrator.

The six will be honored for having achieved fame in civic/community service, education, fine arts, government, law, military and religion. The six are being singled out for their innovations, leadership and contributions on a community, state or national level.

The ceremony will be in the Retama Room on the second floor at Harvin Center. Esenjay Petroleum Corp. and H.E.B. Foods are corporate sponsors of the project.

Davis said the Wall of Honor will be perpetual, with recipients to be added each year. Awards will be given in 16 categories, including business, communications, development, engineering, finance, health sciences, science, sports and technology.
