On April 20, 2017, 135 guests attended DePaul Catholic’s annual Hall of Fame dinner, held at the LaSalle University Ballroom. The event netted over $43,000 to support DePaul’s educational programs.
Honored this year were John and Maureen Fries, and David Diehl.
David Diehl has been a faculty member, administrator and coach at LaSalle College High School since 1961. He graduated from LaSalle College High School in 1955.
Mr. Diehl has served LaSalle in many capacities in the last 47 years: teacher, coach, disciplinarian and principal. His leadership skills led LaSalle into the 21st century, overseeing the School’s advancement in technology, and the building of LaSalle’s St. Michael’s Hall, as well as the West Wing.
The David Program at LaSalle College High School is named in honor of Mr. Diehl, as well as Brother David Albert. This academic support service is for college bound students with mild learning disabilities. Participating students spend one period each day developing strategies for academic success. With a student-educator ratio of 2:1, the program focuses on problem solving, organizational and self-advocacy skills.
We are pleased to honor David Diehl with the 2017 Hall of Fame award.
