Hello Deer Park Friends and Families!
Your Deer Park Hall of Fame is back up and running! Within the last month, your DP Hall of Fame committee has resumed meeting virtually, to get the ball rolling for our 2021 nominations. These nomination forms are available for printout on the right side of this page.
You can find many great links on our page, including order forms to purchase bricks for the “Wildcat Walk” located at the entrance to the Harry Yeaggy Family Stadium. These bricks are a great way to honor and remember your favorite DP Wildcat.
Our goal is to grow this organization, celebrating fellow Deer Parkers who continue to make us proud. We look forward to reading about the next class of nominees. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via email at DeerParkHOF@gmail.com with any questions, concerns, or comments. One of our committee members will reply to you promptly. Our committee wishes you health and safety during these trying times, and to remember: It’s always a Great Day To Be A Wildcat!

The Deer Park High School Hall of Fame was established under the authority of the Alumni Association and with the blessing of the Board of Education in order to both honor those who have dignified Deer Park with their own excellence and their contributions to their community, as well as celebrate those whose roots are in Deer Park.
Our Hall of Fame is unique in that it not only features prominent alumni of Deer Park, but also includes worthy members of the staff and administration that have contributed to Deer Park Schools over the course of its history. There is a great variety of accomplishments that have promoted people into the Hall of Fame. While this is not specifically an Athletic Hall of Fame, we have athletes here. We also have members who have had wonderful careers in many fields, as well as members whose student achievements were exemplary. We have teachers, principals, coaches, superintendents, athletic directors...dancers, athletes, scolars musicians, actors...volunteers, leaders, followers, philanthropists. The only true requirement is that you honor Deer Park by serving our community, our nation, and our world.
One recipient noted, "Lots of good things and good people have come from Deer Park. You can leave Deer Park, but Deer Park will never leave you." Every inductee has felt that special sense of pride that "the Park" has instilled in them.
The Hall of Fame Leadership Team convened in the Summer of 2019 in order to breathe renewed life into this honorable association. It is our heart, our privilege, and our challenge to honor and celebrate Deer Park's brightest "stars."
