The Wall of Honor is located in Northampton Area High School’s main lobby.  A plaque for each inductee recognizes personal and professional post-high school graduation achievements and features a current photo, as well as the inductee’s senior photo.  The Distinguished Alumni inductees honored on the wall serve as an inspiration to all students and as a reminder to our entire community of Northampton Area School District’s proud education tradition and commitment to serve others.

 

Each inductee was publicly honored at the Foundation’s Distinguished Alumni Award Celebration on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at Woodstone Country Club and Lodge, Danielsville, Pennsylvania.  

 

Family, friends, colleagues, community members, faculty, and students joined the Konkrete Kids Educational Foundation in making the Celebration Dinner and Recognition Program a memorable event for the Distinguished Alumni Wall of Honor inductees.  The Celebration also served as a Foundation fundraiser to help make monetary grants available to all Northampton Area School District faculty and administrators to develop and provide innovative programs that positively impact District students.
