This morning, the EHS Alumni Foundation presented a total of $169,225 in scholarships to eighty-seven 2020 EHS graduates. Our top three graduating scholars each received $11,000. Presenting the awards were the EHSAF Scholarship Committee and school staff. Channel 13 was also there and may share the award “ceremony” at the noon news today (5/1/2020). Congratulations!! And thank you to all of the EHS alumni who donate so generously to the EHSAF scholarship fund.
Due to the COVID-19 precautions and guidelines being put into place, the East High School Alumni Association is postponing the Scarlet Celebration and Heritage Club Luncheon on Friday, May 8, and the Alumni Softball Game on Thursday, May 7. These events will not happen on their scheduled days. We are considering plans for replacement events on some scale and will have more information on that soon.
Still on is golf play for the EHS Golf Classic, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, May 8 & 9. Teams can register tee times at https://www.ehsgolfclassic.org
We will continue to explore possible 2020 events to honor our newest East High School Hall of Fame inductees, recognize East High School Foundation supporters and provide general EHS Alumni Association updates. In the meantime, please remember our tremendous East High School Alumni Foundation and scholarship program rely on generous support from alumni and friends, and local businesses. As we consider other plans for this year, you can still renew association dues and donate to scholarships on our Donate Page. We hope everyone will.
Thank you for continued support of Des Moines East High School!
Please note that the 1960 and 1970 Class Reunions have also been postponed. More info to come! Follow us on social media and check your emails for more up-to-date announcements.
