Hi!  We are so excited for the 2021 AE Hall of Fame banquet and induction ceremony on November 5.  We have 10 amazing inductees that will be celebrated and honored.  They are:

 

Academic/Professional Achievement

Shannan Slane Brown

Amanda Oberly Dunlap

Paula Riedel

Jennifer Harris Whitehead

Brad Smith

Greg Helser

For Community Service and School Support

Walter Paxson

Harry Heise

Mike Swaney

Brian Winegardner

The evening begins at 5 pm with a tour of the school.  At 5:30 hors d’oeuvres will be available along with entertainment.  We will be introducing Mr. Bobby Dotson, our new Director of bands here at AE.  This is also a time to reconnect with those you may not have seen in a while.  At 6:30  pm a delicious catered meal will be served.  The induction ceremony will follow the meal.

We will make a short introduction of our committee members, and then the fun begins.  You will get to hear the inductees being introduced, and then each will speak about their journey and how they have reached this point.  We do have one that will be receiving posthumously. There will be a family member appointed to speak about him.  We are so honored to have such wonderful inductees and look forward to hearing what they have to share.

Some of you may have had a few inductees as students, others are newer and may not know them.  The inductees for community service and school support give endlessly to the different events and fundraisers we do here at Allen East and it would be wonderful for you to come and show support for all they do.  We would like to have teachers, staff, school board, and administration in attendance and any guests you wish to bring that evening.

The Hall of Fame organization is self-supporting.  Tickets are now on sale at the school for you to purchase.  Please see Sue Young in The Board of Education office.  Checks need to made payable to Allen East Schools with HOF tickets written on the memo line.  All tickets are $15.00 eachDeadline to purchase tickets is October 15th.  If you have a special young person you would like to have in attendance on this evening please encourage them to come.  It is important that all young people realize they can attain any goal they set, and how hard work and determination leads to career paths where dreams really do come true.  Looking forward with excitement to see you on October 24th!
