On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, EASTERN held its annual Awards Night at 7 p.m. at Upper Moreland High School. This year 121 students were recognized for their achievements with $46,000 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, winners of special end-of-year awards, and those who have achieved the Attendance Award. EASTERN is honored to announce two new awards instituted for this year’s Awards Night including the Sean C. Burke Memorial Award and the Culinary Arts Institute at Montgomery County Community College Award.
Chakai Sander-Ramos, a senior in the Automotive Technology program was the recipient of the Sean C. Burke Memorial Award. He is photographed here with the Burke family.
“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. “It is a source of pride for all of us to see the students on stage being recognized for their hard work and outstanding achievement. We are grateful to all of our award donors and to the EASTERN Foundation for holding fundraisers throughout the year.”
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.
Chef Ben Vozzo from the Culinary Arts Institute at Montgomery County Community College presented awards to Hunter Meier, a senior in EASTERN’s Culinary Arts program, and Jenna Painter, a junior in EASTERN’s Culinary Arts program.
