Novak, Magnussen will be honored at ‘Evening of Excellence

New Prague High School will induct two members to its Hall of Fame during the school’s Evening of Excellence program at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 16, in the high school auditorium. Both awards will be given posthumously.

Dr. E.E. Novak is being honored with the Distinguished Service Award. Dr. Novak arrived in New Prague in 1895 to practice medicine, and continued to practice until his death in the 1960s. He was also a community leader and school board member for many years.

Joel Magnussen will receive the Distinguished Alumnus Award. Magnussen, a 1984 graduate, served many years in the U.S. Coast Guard, earning a number of honors. He died of cancer in 2003.

The two will be honored at the Evening of Excellence, which is a program that also honors current NPHS students for their academic and arts accomplishments.
