Thanks to a generous alumni donor, a new archway will be installed in August of 2023 at the player’s entrance of the EAHS Football Stadium and JoAnn Schaffer Track. The archway will honor EASD Coaches Dean Wilson and Paul Yanke. To celebrate their legacy, the Elkhorn Area School District Recognition Committee is raising funds to install commemorative plaques for the new archway. These plaques will serve as a tribute to Coach Wilson and Coach Yanke and their many contributions to our students and community. Please consider helping us meet our fundraising goal of $2,500 to purchase and install these plaques. Your donation, no matter how small, will go a long way in ensuring that we can install these plaques and celebrate the legacy of our alumni for generations to come.
