Tickets are still available for the Davis High School Hall of Fame’s 2013 induction ceremony.
Five new inductees will be honored — Bob Bowen, the city of Davis’ public relations manager and a DHS graduate; Theresa Hayes, director of instruction at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles; Gina Ostini Miles, an equestrian who earned a silver medal in the 2008 Olympic Games; Rick Stromberg, former DHS vocational instructor and athletic director; and Lynne Unger Yackzan, the catalyst for creation of the DHS Blue & White Foundation.
The induction ceremony will take place Saturday, Sept. 14, at Freeborn Hall on the UC Davis campus. A 6 p.m. reception is followed by dinner and awards at 7 p.m. Davis Enterprise columnist Bob Dunning, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame himself last year, will be the master of ceremonies.
Among the members of the DHS Hall of Fame are Nobel Laureate Carol Greider; the late dancer Tony Fields; military hero John Barovetto; world-class athletes Craig Wilson (water polo), Dave Scott (triathlon), Marc Hicks (football) and Denise Curry (basketball); celebrated local educators Floyd Fenocchio, Richard Brunelle, Joanne Moldenhauer and Jim O’Keefe; and Blue Devil coaches and mentors, including Ralph Villanueva, Dick Lewis and A.J. “Bud” Henle.
Tickets are $65 each, and tables of 10 may be reserved for a $1,000 sponsorship. Table sponsors will receive preferred seating.
In addition, Hall of Fame supporters are asked to include a $65 donation to sponsor a teacher’s attendance at the event. Recipients will be selected by lottery from a list of Davis High teachers who indicate a desire to attend.
