On Thursday, November 3, United Township High School dedicated a new scrolling display sign in honor of Corey Arvanis, class of 1989. Mr. Arvanis passed away soon after he completed his freshman year at Northern Illinois University as a result of injuries received in an automobile accident.
The new sign was made possible with a generous donation by Corey’s mother, Pam Rothbart. For the past twenty years a scholarship has been awarded to a deserving UTHS graduate in honor of Corey.
Mrs. Rothbart, in cooperation with UTHS, decided to consolidate the remaining money in the scholarship fund for a larger memorial project. In brainstorming projects, the idea of a sign surfaced as a need for the school.
UTHS Principal Carl Johnson stated “this is great example of a UTHS family giving back to benefit the students and parents,” adding further “that this is a tremendous visual addition to our school as well as an important communication tool for our community.”
Mrs. Rothbart stated “while Corey’s death was a tragedy, this gift is a celebration of his life and a lasting gift to the students of UTHS and the community in his memory.”
The United Township community greatly appreciates the generosity of Mrs. Rothbart and Family.
