DONOR SPOTLIGHT

The ETHS Educational Foundation is pleased to announce that Michael B. Arrington, class of 1961, pledged a gift of $330,000 to transform the outdated ETHS weight room into the Michael B. Arrington Wellness & Performance Center. “I’m honored to provide this gift to my alma mater,” remarked Mr. Arrington. "[The new facility] allows ETHS athletes, as well as the entire student body, an opportunity to achieve optimum results for peak performance.”

“As I reflect on my high school years, I realize I had an extraordinary experience. Back in the 60s, we didn't have today's technology, but we had challenging, engaging teachers...To this day, I still reference what [one of my favorite teachers] taught us about the writing process. I support ETHS not only because of my own high school experience, but because I want current and future students to enjoy the benefits that crucial educational and technological advancements bring. I'm a proud graduate and I want to 'pay it forward' to continue the legacy of this outstanding school. ”
