Felton F. Waggoner Hall of Honor

The Felton F. Waggoner Hall of Honor Foundation recognizes Deer Park High School graduates who have distinguished themselves as role models over a life of sustained and extraordinary achievements.


These graduates must have made significant, recognizable contributions through their life’s service or accomplishments to their professional field or community. They must stand above their peer group, and they must be positive role models for students and the youth of their communities. 


Each spring, the Hall accepts nominations from which up to four inductees are selected.  The induction dinner takes place in the fall of each year.




MARCH 2023 - The Felton F. Waggoner Hall of Honor is seeking nominations for the Hall’s 2023 induction class.  The purpose of the Hall of Honor is to recognize Deer Park High School graduates who have distinguished themselves as role models within their professions or in their communities.


“Over the years, many outstanding Deer have been recognized by the Hall of Honor,” chairman Adrian Burke said.  “They include doctors, educators, foster parents, entertainers, athletes, and more.  Each of them has changed the world in some way, but they have one thing in common: they walked the halls of our community’s schools.”


The list of past inductees is impressive, but Burke said the most exciting aspect of the Hall’s work is that the best is yet to come.  “We know that there are more graduates whose accomplishments are noteworthy, and the nomination process is the best way to learn about their stories,” Burke said.  “But the catch is that someone has to take the time to share those stories.”


If you know of a Deer Park graduate who is deserving of recognition by the Hall, complete the nomination form below and email it to the Deer Park ISD Communications Department at [email protected].  Forms can also be dropped off or mailed to the Communications Department, DPISD Education Support Center, 2800 Texas Ave., Deer Park TX 77536.


Nomination packets must be received by 4 p.m. on May 17, 2023.
