Proviso East High School Prepares for Centennial Celebration

Congratulations to Proviso East High School! On October 15, 2010 the Proviso East Pirates will celebrate homecoming and 100 years of service to the Proviso community.

Proviso East was founded in 1910. For the past 100 years the school has created a storied and spirited legacy. A few of  the school’s  notable alumni include: Gemini and Apollo astronaut Eugene Cernan, Naval designer, ship builder and sailing raconteur John Kupris; actor Dennis Franz, philanthropist Frank G. Schaefer, philanthropist and co-founder of BET Sheila Johnson, NBA players Doc Rivers, Jim Brewer, Michael Finley, Steven Hunter, and  Shannon Brown; self-made millionaire Christopher Gardner (The Pursuit of Happyness), PTHS 209 Board Members Robert Cox and Theresa Kelly; Senator Kim Lightford, and Cook County Recorder of Deeds Eugene Moore.

There is no doubt that East is home to some of the country’s brightest scholars, athletes, trail-blazers, and community servants. The Friends of Proviso East Alumni Organization has planned a host of events to commemorate this special occasion. PTHS 209 students, faculty, staff, and the Board of Education will all be on hand to celebrate this historic event.

“Proviso East High School has been a staple in the Proviso community for decades,” said PTHS 209 Board President Chris Welch. “We are working to ensure that the great legacy that is Proviso East goes on for decades more. Congratulations to all of our alumni, faculty, and staff for being a part of an institution that has dedicated 100 years of service to the community, and 100 years of excellence.”
