2011 INTERBORO HALL OF FAME

           
           
Linda K. Freeman
 Interboro Class of 1963 

Pictured as “Most Likely to Succeed” in the yearbook, Linda Freeman has accomplished that and more, not just in the eyes of Interboro, but in the surrounding communities as well. A genuinely warm and caring person, Linda recognized an important need in the community when an increasing number of families and individuals were coming to her church for help with food. Linda, together with her friend, Lana, took steps to address that need by creating a food cupboard. In August 2001, the door to the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry officially opened. It is headquartered at the Prospect Hill Baptist Church and, to date, serves more than 12,000 individuals each year. A tireless worker for our less fortunate neighbors, Linda Knorr Freeman was able to translate her vision into a reality that provides one of the most significant and important community outreach programs in Delaware County.


Gerald J. Kennedy
Staff Member
 
Not only was Jerry Kennedy an outstanding social studies teacher for 35 years, he served with distinction in many capacities as a teacher, coach, counselor, leader, mentor, and role model. He was a devoted coach of baseball and football for many years, and asked to have a special “Buc Pride” banner made when he became head football coach in 1987. He led the team to a championship in 1988 and won the Coach of the Year Award. “Buc Pride” became a permanent fixture at Interboro High. Whether in the classroom, the school, or through his devoted service to athletic and co-curricular activities, Jerry always put the needs of students first. He worked tirelessly serving on committees and task forces to make Interboro High School the best it could be.

Sharon Parker has distinguished herself as a career educator committed to the education, health, safety, and welfare of thousands of students and staff members during her storied thirty-two years in public education. During her tenure in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District from 1979 to 2006, she distinguished herself in a number of ways: middle school language arts teacher, team leader, director of curriculum, principal, and finally superintendent of the school district. Sharon has also earned a number of awards for her effectiveness and dedication: Wallingford-Swarthmore Teacher of the Year (1992), the Pennsylvania Music Educators’ Association Superintendent of the Year (2003), and the Delaware County March of Dimes Excellence in Education Award (2006).

He joined the Prospect Park Police Department in the early 1970’s, and after many years of service, was promoted to Chief of Police by the Prospect Park Borough Council in 2003. Mr. Saddic has never stopped being a contributing member of the community since the earliest days. “Officer John,” as he is affectionately called by many who know him, has volunteered his time and professional equipment as a disc jockey at countless youth dances, creating an enduring bond with the young people of the community. In addition, John was the leading instructor and facilitator for the D.A.R.E. program at Prospect Park School since its inception.
