The Radnor High School Wall of Honor
The Radnor High School "Wall of Honor" is a permanent memorial located in the school's lobby that commemorates the 57 Radnor High School students who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Completely funded by donations and unveiled on May 26 and 27, 2016, the memorial includes a plaque, a mounted interactive touchscreen where visitors can learn more about each of the inductees, and a flag box for each brave veteran from RHS who lost his or her life in conflict.
The idea for the Wall of Honor was born in one of RHS’s Senior Seminar classes during the 2014-15 school year. With the help of Marty Costello, Commander of Delaware County for the American Legion, the project grew into a labor of love for staff members, alumni, local veterans and community members. RHS students researched the inductees' lives and histories to create short films on each inductee that are accessible via the touchscreen.
You can still donate toward the upkeep of the Wall of Honor and related community events. Donate now.
