At Shelbyville High School, we believe in teaching young people the hard and soft skills that will offer them control over their own destiny. Inspiring action is of paramount importance, and will always be at the heart of what we do as educators.
One such example of this can be found within the service project launched by senior level student, Dalton Hoadley. He has been selflessly devoting his energy and effort toward an initiative that seeks to memorialize all those lost to the coronavirus pandemic.
Using the state-of-the-art laser engraver and Adobe Photoshop Software here at the high school, Dalton creates custom mementos for families impacted by the loss of a loved one. This represents the sort of servant leadership that is often underrepresented in the world today, but has become standard practice all across the Shelbyville School District.
If you have lost a loved one to the coronavirus pandemic and are a resident of Shelbyville, Illinois, please do not hesitate to reach out in inquiry. We will engrave a photo of your loved one at no cost. Photos that include students within the Shelbyville School District are preferred. Please submit to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org (Mr. Kyle Ladd, principal).
Recognition should also be directed toward Mr. John Tynan, who has offered support, assistance, and mentoring to Dalton. In Mr. Tynan’s classroom, our students are able to utilize machinery purchased thanks to generous donations provided by the Habitat for Humanity of Shelby County. Additionally, the family of Paul White (Brooke Paluch, daughter) graciously donated funds to this worthy project, which has helped to provide the supplies needed.
Custom engraving extending beyond this initiative or unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic, is always possible. To inquire about cost, and to speak to the specifics of your request, please reach out to either Dalton Hoadley or Mr. John Tynan.
