About Us » The Chase Donnell Award

The Chase Donnell Award

Chase was a student at Walter Hill. During his 5th grade year, he was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma. He was offered a "Make A Wish," and instead of using it for himself, he gave it to our school for the gym. He asked for all new sports equipment and we still use it today! The Chase Donnell award is given each year to one fifth grade student who exemplifies the characteristics that Chase lived out.
