Eastern Health and Safety Plan — Coronavirus

Eastern Howard School Corporation has created the following plan to implement safeguards ensuring a safe and healthy work environment.

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.
