St. Georges Technical High School has been named a Safe Sports School, First Team for a three-year period. The award, given by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, champions safety and recognizes secondary schools that have met the recommended standards to improve safety in sports. The award reinforces the importance of providing the best level of care, injury prevention, and treatment.

“St. Georges Technical High School is honored to receive this 1st Team recognition from NATA,” said Mark Robinson, Athletic Trainer/Athletic Director “We remain committed to keeping our student athletes safe during physical education classes, team practices, and games so they can accomplish their own goals of great competition, high standards, fair sportsmanship, and good health. Our goal is to lead our athletics program to the highest safety standards for all of our student athletes.”

St. Georges joins four other Delaware high schools (A.I. duPont, Middletown, Dover, and Achmere Academy) that currently hold the Safe Sports School designation.

Tom Gears, a Delcastle math teacher, is one of 32 individuals and groups to receive a Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Award this year. He will be recognized at a banquet in Dover on October 29.

Gears is being honored for his 40 years of volunteer service to the Historic Red Clay Valley Inc. and Wilmington and Western Railroad. He said he started volunteering with the WWRR when he was in the 8th grade.

“I was always fascinated with trains and I still am,” said the 1984 Delcastle graduate who has ridden trains in 34 countries across the world and has an extensive model train collection. Gears has done nearly every volunteer job there is with the WWRR, from painting and cleaning to driving the locomotive, inspecting the tracks, and publishing a newsletter, the Lantern. He serves on the organization’s Board of Directors, and he is said to be relentless in his efforts to find ways to connect with and inspire the community to learn the rich history of the Red Clay Valley and WWRR. He is most passionate about educational outreach programs.

“After all these years, the thing I still like the most is when I get to introduce the trains to children – giving them tours of the locomotive cab, showing them the controls,” he said, adding that he was surprised and honored to be receiving an award. “Volunteers don’t do their work for recognition – they do it because they are passionate about serving the community.”

Gears has been a teacher at Delcastle since 2000 after teaching part-time in the district’s Adult Education Division for five years.

Question: Have you ever driven by our High Schools in the evening and noticed that the parking lots are full? Have you ever wondered what is going on?

Answer: The Adult Education Apprenticeship and Technical Training Division (AED) is hard at work on those nights providing training for approximately 1300 adult learners. The AED provides the 159-hours of related training for the State Registered Apprentices and Technical Training students in New Castle County. The classes are held in classrooms throughout the schools with hands-on instruction and practice in the career areas. Many of our daytime instructors also teach in the various programs offered in the evenings. Chances are, the next time you hire a Journeyman Plumber, Electrician, HVAC or other service person, they will be a graduate of the NCC Vo-Tech AED programs.
