Janas to be honored Friday
DEL NORTE – This Friday night at halftime of the boys’ varsity basketball game at Tiger Field House, the Del Norte School District will honor Mr. Marlin Janas for his years of service to the Del Norte School District.
Mr. Janas served the Del Norte School District for over 40 years in numerous roles as a teacher, principal, superintendent, coach, and school board member. Mr. Janas’s commitment to the Del Norte School District was tremendous. He gave of his time, his talents, his money, and his love.
Through the generous donation of an unnamed community member, we are thrilled to be able to present Mr. Janas with an honorary plaque; and, in addition, to place a marker honoring him at Speiser Field, near the football and track concession stand in a section landscaped by Mr. Sauvigne’s construction class. The inscription there reads: “The lessons he taught about generosity, passion, high expectations, and hard work have inspired numerous Del Norte students throughout the years to recognize their potential and ultimately to realize it”. The games begin at 3:30 p.m., and the presentation will take place around 8:30 p.m.
