Eastern Howard School Corporation has created the following plan to implement safeguards ensuring a safe and healthy work environment. This plan is pursuant to Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-26 which outlines Indiana’s response to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. EHSC’s plan has been developed based on recommendations from local and federal health agencies. The plan is subject to change as more guidance is forthcoming. Any EHSC employee with a concern regarding the safety of the workplace should discuss it immediately with their supervisor or the superintendent. Thank you, and stay safe!

The Whorwell Musicianship Fund

Initiated by EHS band alums to honor Chuck and Joann Whorwell, this fund is committed to enhancing a culture of fine musicianship at Eastern High School.  Its goal is to make instruments more available and affordable and to provide for special clinics and instruction.  In 2016 grant funds were used to purchase two trumpets, and in 2017 nearly $1,000 was granted to purchase two flutes and one clarinet.

As of August 2017 the fund total was $30,100.  Continued donations to this fund will make even larger grants possible year after year.
