About Rev. Cyril J. Allwein

Inaugural Induction Class

Rev. Cyril J. Allwein was one of the key bridges from Central Catholic High School to Delone Catholic High School. He was the principal at Central Catholic at the time of the fire. He was charged with keeping the education of his students on track in the aftermath of that devastating event. Classes were taught in several locations throughout McSherrystown from February 1938 through the 1939-40 school year. Father Allwein was named principal of the new Delone Catholic High School, and served as its leader until 1949. In gratitude for his leadership in difficult and uncertain times, we induct Revered Cyril J. Allwein into the Delone Catholic High School Hall of Honor.
