Dr. Janusz never gave up playing the piano, working on compositions until his death on Oct. 12, 2007.

William "Sonny" Shrader Most Valuable Athlete Award

Shrader, William and Mary Louise '45_hs_web.jpg
William J. "Sonny" Shrader, was a member of the Delone Catholic Class of 1945. He was a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II. He and his wife, Mary Louise (Spangler) Shrader Slagle '45, had four sons, and made it a top priority that all four would receive a Catholic education. Their sons all graduated from St. Vincent de Paul School, Hanover, and Delone Catholic. In order for this to happen, Mr. Shrader worked a full-time job and a part-time job, all while being actively involved with the McSherrystown Knights of Columbus and the Delone Catholic Athletic Association. Among the many events he worked for the Athletic Association was the weekly bingo which raised funds to provide opportunities for Delone Catholic student-athletes. Such was his love for the Squires, that he once refused to sit with his son, Bill '65, at a Delone Catholic football game. Bill was a coach for Diocesan rival Bishop McDevitt, and was scouting for the Crusaders' upcoming game against the Squires. Their father-son relationship resumed following the game. 

The William “Sonny” Shrader Most Valuable Athlete Award is presented to a senior male athlete who has been a letter winner in two or more seasons. He must have distinguished himself as a representative of Delone Catholic High School and the community, and he must possess the following qualities and exhibit the same on and off the playing field: leadership, sportsmanship, responsibility, proper attitude, judgment and initiative, and he must be an individual who strives for excellence at all times.

This award has been presented each year since Mr. Shrader’s sudden passing in 1972. In 2012, a scholarship was added for recipients who choose to continue their education beyond high school. In years when the recipient does not choose to further his education, the scholarship will be awarded as tuition assistance for an incoming freshman at Delone Catholic.

Donna J. Yake Scholarship

Donna Yake was a graduate of Immaculate Conception School in New Oxford, St. Joseph’s Academy in McSherrystown, Gettysburg College, Purdue University and the University of Maryland. She served as an educator in the Hanover area for nearly 50 years, primarily as a high school chemistry and biology teacher, but also as a substitute at Delone Catholic and in Adams Deanery grade schools. Donna completed her career with several years at Paradise School for Boys in Abbottstown. She was a strong-willed individual who believed in hard work and faith-based values and character.

Mrs. Yake lived her entire life in the New Oxford area. Today, her family honors her by awarding a scholarship in her name to a graduating senior at Delone Catholic High School. This student is a graduate of Immaculate Conception School and an active member of Immaculate Conception Parish who exemplifies the ideals that Donna held close.
