Former IHS instructor earns Hall of Fame honor


September 28, 2016 - 12:00 AM

David Dutton, long-time drama instructor, was inducted earlier this month into the Indiana High School Forensic Association Hall of Fame.
The induction ceremony took place at the IHSFA Fall Clinic and Banquet in Indianapolis.
Dutton, in his 44th year of teaching, spent 24 of those years in Iola, and 20 at Penn High School In Mishawaka, Ind.
“I was not aware of my nomination or inclusion ahead of time,” Dutton told the Register in an email. “Instead, I was surprised by the announcement.”
The IHSFA had contacted Dutton’s children, who arrived unannounced for the ceremony, ushered in at the appropriate moment.
“Having them all there made a truly special occasion even more special,” he said.
His children, Shiloh, Keturah and Sabra, coming from Missouri, Kansas and Indiana, respectively, were on hand, as well as Sabra’s daughter, Ava.
