KCHS adds 5 to Hall of Fame

WORTON — It’s what they have done since their glory days at Kent County High School that distinguishes the 2023 Hall of Fame inductees as much as the all-star accolades and state titles they earned while wearing their Trojan blue and gold.

Mary Fisher, who spent the biggest part of her 50 years in education as a coach and athletic director at KCHS, led this year’s induction class that included career airman Dale Cooper ’86 and soldier Danielle Brooks ’95;  registered nurse and school instructor Diona Perkins ’88; and psychologist Marone Brown ’91.

They were celebrated Saturday, Oct. 28 with the unveiling of their plaques on the Wall of Fame near the high school gym followed by an induction ceremony in the school auditorium.

Cooper, retired and now living in Texas, was unable to attend. The plan is to formally honor him as part of the 2024 celebration.

In her welcome, Principal Kris Hemstetter ’86 spoke about the Trojan pride the inductees demonstrated during their KCHS careers  — on and off the playing fields. She applauded them for their passion for their school, their teammates and their respective sports.

Hall of fame committee members Michelle Phillips and Athletic Director Kevin Taylor unveiled the plaques amid much fanfare and applause. Committee members Phillips and Trish McGee led the formal induction ceremony, which included remarks from each of the honorees.

Fred Wyman is chairman of the committee, which also includes Brian Kirby, James “Buck” Kennard, Holly Bramble and Scott Jones.
