Friend of the Foundation Award

Foundation honors Holly Kost with the 2016 Friend of the Foundation Award

The District 205 Foundation is proud to honor Holly Kost with the “Friend of the Foundation” award at the upcoming 2016 Gala. Come celebrate Holly and her dedication and service to our district at the 2016 Foundation Gala to be held at the Drake Oak Brook on Friday, March 11th.

 

Holly’s roots are planted in Elmhurst. She grew up here, raised her family here and absorbed all things volunteer here.  Her involvement began with tenure at Jackson Elementary School where her three children attended over the course of 10 years. Committee chair led to PTA President. She simultaneously served and worked with REACH PTA in various roles including President. A role she went on to hold for eight years.

 

A theme of appreciated leadership decorates her volunteer resume. No paychecks were exchanged for her hours further spent as founding member of York High School Academic Boosters and the York Distinguished Alumni Program, or her active roles in Music Boosters, Drama Boosters, and the York Advisory Team.Holly and her husband, Kelly, are loyal and generous supporters of the Foundation. Holly was a Thiems Grant recipient for the first Jr. Great Books Program, a literacy enrichment that has been absorbed into the fabric of most of our elementary schools.

 

This is only a meek excerpt of Holly’s decades of dedication to our schools and other community organizations. Her impact of greatness is immeasurable but devotion and the charity of time are consistent ripples felt through the tide pool of education. 

Thank you to Holly for sharing her talents with our community!
