Knights of Honor

As part of the NPSD's 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2016, the district introduced the Knights of Honor Program. The purpose of this newly formed "Hall of Fame" is to recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to the school district, community, and/or their chosen career, and therefore bring great honor to the NPSD. The program is designed to recognize notable North Penn community members, former staff members, and alumni who have brought honor and outstanding service to the district. The goal is to pay tribute to these important people and their contributions but also inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

Nominations are open now through January 31, 2022. The ceremony will take place May 5, 2022.

Criteria and Rules

  1. Consideration will be given to an individual who has brought honor and outstanding service to the North Penn School District in the following two categories:

    • A person providing direct and significant services benefiting NPSD students and the community as a whole.

  2. Honorees will be chosen annually with the number of nominees chosen at the discretion of the selection committee as outlined below.
