Welcome to the High School HSO. There are two ways to enroll your family in the HSO:
A family can become a member at any time either by submitting the $10 membership at the beginning of the school year. As most of you know, the HSO is a district wide organization that provides scholarships for graduating seniors. A family must be part of the $10 paid membership as a requirement for senior students to be eligible for consideration in earning an HSO scholarship.
Our 2020-21 Executive Board this year consists of:
President: Dena Klein
Vice President: Jennifer Lauermann
Recording Secretary: Jen Gavigan
Corresponding Secretary: Lanie Manns
Treasurer: Amy Sohl
Council Delegate: Mary Ebert
This past school year the HSO continued its 55 year legacy and awarded a total of $12,000 to 16 graduating seniors, placing the value of each scholarship at $750. This is in thanks to our families who have become members and because of those of you who participate in our fundraisers that we hold. Throughout the school year, we hold our annual council flower sale, our fall mum sale, our 50/50 raffles at sporting events and restaurant nights. Our success with fundraising is due to the generous group of parents and members of our community who support our programs.
Another great event that the HSO sponsors is the celebration of our graduates at their senior banquet. Every senior student is invited to this wonderful event. This is for students only, not parents. However, the committee is looking for your donation to make this event possible. Primarily, our senior parents pay for this occasion through donations. Signs are placed in senior’s yards while they are at the dinner, which is held at the Hilton Lisle and sponsored by Evviva.
If you have any time to commit, we have our HSO meetings the first Tuesday of each month. Thank you to those who have donated their time to our organization in the past and thank you in advance to those parents who are new to the school and who will be giving their time this year as well.
Thank you and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me or anyone on our board. Please follow us on the Lisle High School Home and School Organization Facebook page.
