A grant is awarded each year in memory of Eileen and John Howie in celebration of their generous and dedicated volunteer work in this community. This financial award is given at Highland Park Opening Convocation to a teacher, administrator, or staff member who exemplifies the spirit of community service. The focus of this award is on involvement and commitment to HPISD schools, as well as service to the greater community.
Nominations may be submitted by anyone (not just HPISD faculty) at any time of year. Nominations received after May 31 each year will not be considered until the following year.
