Spellman Humanitarian Awards
Initiated in 1999, the awards honor the memory of the late Dr. Elwood M. (Ossie) Spellman, who served as a member and president of the West Chester School Board from 1951 to 1969. A highly respected area dentist, Dr. Spellman was also actively involved in the Boy Scouts, Rotary Club, YMCA, and Westminster Presbyterian Church.
Each year, the West Chester Area School District and the West Chester Area Education Association award ten deserving seniors from each high school with the Spellman Humanitarian Award. We are very proud to present the winners for the 2019-2020 school year. We hope you will take the time to read all the amazing accomplishments these students performed in the Spellman Humanitarian Award program.
