On Wednesday, May 31, 2017, EASTERN held its annual Awards Night at 7 p.m. at Upper Moreland High School. This year 122 students were recognized for their achievements with $47,000 awarded in the form of scholarships, tools of the trade, plaques, certificates and checks. Awards Night recognizes students who have achieved Straight A, Students of the Month through the year, medal winners at SkillsUSA District and State Competitions, winners of special end-of-year awards, and those who have achieved the Attendance Award. EASTERN is honored to announce two new memorial awards instituted for this year’s Awards Night including the Luke Wynne Gallagher Memorial Award and the Nicholas Hampshire Memorial Award.
“Awards Night is an amazing evening of student recognition that the staff and faculty look
forward to each year,” said Tom Allen, EASTERN’s Executive Director. “Our students are preparing to attend college or work in their field of study at EASTERN. We are pleased to be able to help them achieve their goals.”
Student awards are provided by the EASTERN Foundation, and supported by businesses, various community organizations, and individual donors. The purpose of EASTERN’s Foundation is to recognize EASTERN student achievement and success by assisting both students whose goal is post-secondary education and students who intend to start a rewarding career. Our business and industry partners inspired this effort and continue to support it extensively.
