Why You Should Choose Eastern
Why Should You Choose Eastern?
Eastern Howard School Corporation has a rather catchy tagline.
A Tradition Of Excellence. A Vision For Tomorrow.
You will not go to any other school in central Indiana and see this in such evidence as you do when you observe the culture and people around Eastern Howard. While the school system emphasizes traditional values and maintains a longstanding tradition of excellence, it constantly reevaluates itself to fit into the evolving world. Tradition in this institution blends with cutting edge technology and an eye toward the industries of tomorrow. Investing yourself in Eastern is investing yourself in a community. Don’t just take it from us though. Have a look at the video below to see exactly what parents and students see in Eastern Howard. We know once you do, you will understand why everyone wants to be a Comet.
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.
