The Selection Process

Honorees inducted into the Deer Park High School Athletic Hall of Honor are selected by the Hall of Honor selection committee based on nominations from current Deer Park ISD faculty members, administrators, or staff, alumni of Deer Park High School, or a member of the selection committee. Information provided by the individuals making the nomination are the basis for the Hall of Honor Selection Committee’s decision.

Honorees are inducted under one of three categories: Athlete, Coach, or Contributor.
