EAHS National Honor Society gives backEAHS National Honor Society gives back

This year the East Aurora High School National Honor Society, under the leadership of faculty sponsors Tanya Galloway and Brian Kinsella, successfully completed 3 Community Service projects. Throughout April the NHS collected donations for Hesed House, an Aurora-based shelter that provides resources and accommodations for the homeless in our community. The NHS also painted garbage cans for an organized Aurora Parks and Recreation Clean Up Day on April 30. Lastly, the group collected donations for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.  

The NHS also successfully fundraised for their own activities and organizational programming. To this end they were able to honor two of their own with $1000 scholarships. Seniors Lorena Alvarez and Andrea Sosa-Lopez were chosen by a faculty panel based on  their personal essays, community service hours, academic performance, and student resumes, which reflected the candidates commitment to the pillars of National Honor Society: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
