Derry’s Connection to the 2021 Olympics

Valarie Allman

Derry Church has a connection to an athlete who will be competing in the 2021 summer Olympics in Tokyo: Valarie Allman is one of the favorites for the gold medal in the women’s discus. Read about her stunning qualifying performance over the weekend.

If you were around in the early 2000s, you might remember Valarie, parents David and Lisa, and brother Kevin. This family photo is from the 2004 church directory. The Allmans moved to Colorado after they left Hershey.
