Eastwood High School Selling Bricks To Alumni, Students, And Staff To Be Part Of New Campus
Eastwood High School is undergoing a massive renovation and rebuild, and you can be a part of the new campus and help students go to college at the same time. The Ysleta Independent School District is having a fundraiser that will not only beautify the campus, but help kids go to college.
The Deby Lewis Foundation is giving Eastwood HS students, alumni, faculty and staff the chance to buy engraved bricks that will be turned into a walkway on the campus. The foundation is named in honor of Lewis who graduated from Eastwood High School and later taught at the school and served as a YISD school board member. Lewis died in 2015 after battling cancer. Linum Street, which is in the EHS area, was renamed Deby Lewis Dr., and the school's tennis courts were renamed in her honor.
You can buy a commemorative brick for $100 a piece on the Deby Lewis Foundation website. The money for the brick sale goes toward scholarships that will ultimately help students get to college.
