The Erie High School Education Foundation is the single largest scholarship source for graduates and alumni of Erie High School. Last year the Foundation gave away over $50,000 to graduates and alumni to continue their education in the field of their choice. These post-highshool educations range from tradesman-type jobs – where skilled professionals work with their hands for a living – to out future doctors, lawyers, teachers and technicians. The EHS Ed Foundation isn’t only interested in the highest GPAs or class ranks for their scholarship recipients. All students selected for scholarships have one thing in common: DRIVE. We like to call them “uphill skiiers”. These are the students who despite the challenges that may arise in their path to their future career, keep pushing forward toward success. Again, these students come from all sorts of backgrounds and have chosen a variety of future careers from Automotive Service Technician to Nursing.
We offer a great way to support the Foundation each year: The FACE Concert. This is a great way to donate to the EHS Ed Foundation because you not only get a tax deductible donation to the Foundation (a 501c3) but you get to enjoy a live performance from local vocal rock group turned international success, FACE. Opening for FACE this year is 5130, Erie High School’s own Jazz Acapella vocal group. This year we have something special planned. Erie High School Choir students will take the stage WITH FACE to perform a song together!
