In yet another adjustment to this Covid-impacted school year, last spring's postponed Underclassmen Awards ceremony was replaced by an assist from USPS (all awards were mailed directly to recipients on October 2)...and our usual in-person late spring formal assembly in the Abbey Church was replaced by this public website announcement. These adjustments in no way diminish the accomplishments of our underclassmen during the 2020-2019 school year.
Please take a moment to read this list of award recipients, all of whom deserve a hearty round of virtual applause from the Delbarton community for sustaining a level of excellence even during a global pandemic. In addition to the young men listed, the following 2019-2020 juniors (who are now seniors) were recognized...
