Seeking Nominations for DHS Trailblazers Program

The Delta High School Booster Club is seeking nominations for the annual DHS Trailblazers Program, which recognizes and honors community members who exemplify the Alaskan Spirit through giving their time and support to the youth of our schools. These Trailblazers are role models for the youth in our community as they “break the trail” for the rest of us who follow.

If you know of someone who meets the criteria to be a Trailblazer, please send us a short paragraph identifying who you are nominating and why he or she is a Trailblazer.

Nominations should be sent to:  dhsboosterclub@gmail.com or dropped off at the Delta High School Office by May 1st.
