Oswego East High School recognized two leaders in the community who have given back to the school in a tremendous way. Jack Feltes and Gina Taylor were honored during halftime of the Crosstown Classic varsity girls and boys basketball games on Friday, Feb. 7. Colleen Olson accepted the award in Taylor’s place.

“These two leaders display a commitment to the success and recognition of all of our students,” Oswego East Principal Dr. Louis Lee said. “They are in the building, almost on a daily basis, serving the needs of our staff and students. We are blessed to have them here at East.”

Feltes can be seen with his camera throughout the building. He has taken literally thousands of pictures at athletic contests, school events, and community functions since the school opened in 2004. He owns his own business and maintains a website http://photographybyfeltes.com.

Taylor is a founding member of the Oswego East Wolf Parents Group. She currently serves as the President of the group. Taylor has been involved with numerous events over the past year. Some of them include Senior Celebration, Blue-Silver Bash, and countless hours helping our faculty and students in different capacities.

Congratulations to both! Although, the person pictured with Dr. Lee is Colleen Olson. She is an awesome volunteer who shoots thousands of photos of our OE kids, free of charge, at all sorts of events and sporting events. While I have no doubt that Jack Feltes has been an involved photographer, his business does have the school contract for senior yearbook pics and other photo work. Colleen (shown here) gives countless hours of her own time with no profit I hope she is the one who was honored there, as she has done such a fantastic job and out of the goodness of her heart. As a professional photographer myself, I know firsthand just how much of her time and talent has been shared. She deserves to be recognized and appreciated!
