The Dannehower Award and Banquet
The Triangle Club’s “keystone event” is the Awards Banquet held on the second Thursday of May at the Presidential Caterers in East Norriton, Pennsylvania, located just north of Germantown Pike on Route 202N. At that time the club recognizes high school seniors, selected by their schools, for their outstanding accomplishments in athletics, academics, and community service.
Public and private high schools throughout Montgomery County will recommend one senior for the Dannehower Award by submitting the student’s application and resume to our selection committee for review. After careful consideration, the committee chooses the Dannehower Award winner as well as a first and second runner up.
The event provides an opportunity to publicize the achievements of these outstanding young men and women. All honorees are accorded individual recognition and their accomplishments read to the audience at the time of the dinner.
