In past years as part of the ceremonies, college scholarships in excess of $50,000 have been awarded annually to Easton students through the Foundation. Contributions to the scholarship program come from alumni and friends of the school. This year with the help of Actress and Honorary Hall of Fame member Sandra Bullock, The New Orleans Rotary Club and the People’s Choice Awards we are again privileged to continue this most worthy program for our students.
Over the years, the Hall of Fame has awarded more than $250,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors, provided the school with needed equipment and supplies, and presented faculty members with cash awards.
Warren Easton, the city’s oldest public high school, is the only such institution in New Orleans to have established a Hall of Fame. Since 1991, there have been 139 people inducted.
