Congratulations to the 2017 Inductees 

Jon McMahon-Class of 2007

Jon is a member of the class of 2007.  He was a four-year member of the varsity baseball team at Londonderry High School.  He is one of the best baseball players in the 39-year school history. He still holds the all-time record in hits, doubles, triples, as well as being in the top three in RBIs and runs scored.  Jon was a three-year, first-team, all-state player and was the

starting shortstop on the 2004 NHIAA Division I State Championship Team.  In addition to baseball, Jon also played basketball and soccer at LHS. Throughout Jon’s high school career he was honored with numerous awards including: 2005 Athlete of the Week for the Derry News, 2005 Offensive Player of the Year for baseball, 2005 Eagle Tribune All Star Team, 2005 2nd Team All State, 1st Team All State in both 2006 and 2007, and runner up for Gatorade Player of the Year in 2007. Upon graduation from Londonderry High School, he earned an appointment to the United States Air Force Academy where he continued his baseball career at the Division I program. Upon graduation from the Academy, Jon received his commission and served his country proudly.

Rebecca Parascandola-Class of 2010

Rebecca is a member of the class of 2010.  Rebecca was a true scholar athlete at Londonderry High School, where in addition to her outstanding athletic career, she graduated in the top 10 in her class.  She was a three-sport athlete at LHS, participating for four years on the field hockey team. During her junior year, she was a member of our NHIAA Division I State Championship team.  She was also a team captain during her senior year.  Rebecca was a four-year varsity athlete on both our indoor and outdoor track and field teams where she was also a four-year All State performer.  She set the indoor state record in the 55 meter hurdles and a school record in the high jump.  During the outdoor season, she set a school record in the 100 meter hurdles and the 2009 heptathlon where she was the state champion.  Upon graduation from Londonderry High School, Rebecca matriculated at Cornell where she continued her career in track and field.  She is currently attending medical school.

Nick DeFrancesco-Class of 2011

Nick is a member of the class of 2011.  He was one of Londonderry High School’s most decorated musicians, earning multiple All State honors in both voice and instrument.  Nick is one of the few musicians in New Hampshire to earn All State for all four years of high school in three different disciplines.   He earned All State in Jazz Voice, Classical Voice, and Violin.  While at LHS, Nick was a member of the Choir, Chamber Choir, Marching Band, Jazz Band, Concert Band, and String Orchestra.  During his senior year, Nick did a senior project where he produced, directed, and performed in a music show that was held at the Derry Opera House. He donated the $2500 profit to the LHS Music Department to fund music lessons for LHS students that wanted to audition for NH All State.  In addition to his LHS music career, Nick auditioned for and was accepted to perform and train with the New England Conservatory Prep Chorale and The Tanglewood Institute summer program. Upon graduation from LHS, Nick attended the Manhattan School of Music Conservatory in New York City where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in classical voice.  While attending the conservator, he performed at many different venues throughout the city.  Nick currently lives in New York City where he performed in several off Broadway productions and continues to audition for Broadway shows.


Ryan Griffin-Class of 2008

Ryan is a member of the class of 2008.  Ryan grew up in Londonderry and decided to attend New Hampton Prep School after his 8th grade year.  Even though he did not initially attend Londonderry High School, Ryan still was an active member of the summer Lancer Power Camp program.  Prior to his senior year, Ryan transferred back to Londonderry High School where he competed in both football and basketball.  Midway through his senior year, Ryan played well enough to be offered a full scholarship to play football at the University of Connecticut.  Ryan never forgot his roots and maintained contact with our athletic training staff and still worked out in our facility when he was in the area.  Ryan had a great deal of success as a tight end at UCONN where he played in two Post Season bowl games. At UCONN, Ryan finished his career as one of the most decorated tight ends in the school’s history.  During his junior year, he was named for the watch list of the John Mackey Award as a top tight end in college football.  Upon graduation from UCONN, Ryan was drafted in the 6th round of the National Football League draft by the Houston Texans.  He has maintained a relationship with Londonderry High School and always stops by to speak with and workout with our student athletes.  Ryan has also been generous in donating NFL gear to be used for post season awards for strong performers in our Lancer Power program.


Nathan Greenberg-Retired Superintendent of Schools

Nate Greenberg retired on June 30, 2017 after 17 years as the Superintendent of Schools of the Londonderry School District.  All total, Mr. Greenberg served as a Superintendent for 30 of his 48-year career in education. During his tenure as Superintendent in Londonderry, he received numerous awards which encompassed his total support for all of the different facets of the Londonderry School District including: New Hampshire Superintendent of the Year, Administrator of the Year from the New Hampshire Music Educators Association, New Hampshire Educational Media Association School Administrator of the Year, National School

Library Journal Administrator of the Year, and AASL Distinguished School Administrators Award.  Nate has stated that, “These awards are a reflection of the teamwork, dedication, focus and expertise of the School Board, Administrators, faculty and staff of the Londonderry School District; partnering with the parents and the community and most importantly our truly outstanding students.” This collaboration has resulted in numerous initiatives and

accomplishments that have added value to the Londonderry School District, including but not limited to: major construction and renovation projects, expansion of in-house special educational programs and services, an innovative Adult Education program, expanded co-curricular and extra-curricular programs, dual credit courses, expansion of AP offerings, approval and implementation of the SAT as the official state assessment, enhanced integration of technology, a zero dropout rate, and an over 90% college acceptance rate.


William O’Connor-Community member

Bill O’Connor is a legendary long-time Destination Imagination team coach/manager, having managed multiple teams for over 20 years.  Starting in elementary school, Bill worked with each team through middle school and high school.  He began as a coach for teams that his four children participated on, but since 2010, he has served as a coach for a team of elementary students who had lost their coach midseason.  Bill stepped in and has been with them ever since.  The students on that team are now students at Londonderry High School.  The team recently won 2nd place at the New Hampshire State Finals and competed at the Global

Finals this past May.  Bill’s teams have competed at the global level each year for the past 15 years.  One of his teams, the DI Dudes, competed at the DI Global Finals for nine consecutive years, finishing in the top five multiple times.  During their senior year at LHS, this group of young men finished 2nd at the Global Finals, competing against 50 teams from around the world.  All five of these former students are now successful in their chosen careers and attribute much of that to their years of working with and learning from Bill O’Connor and the

Destination Imagination program. Some of the skills learned while competing in DI are working as a team member, using creativity to solve problems, and learning to present material in front of a diverse audience.


Mary DeWinkeleer-Faculty
