ELMHURST – The York Student Enrichment Team announces its newest YSET Hero, a local scholarship fund.

The Tom Allen Memorial Scholarship Fund donated $12,000 last semester. The fund is named after a York High School teacher who spent 34 years at the school. The YSET donation was its last, but the fund also was a generous supporter of York's turf field.

The donation went to help fund athletic fees for York students. YSET was able to award more than $50,000 in grants for the 2012-2013 school year through all contributions.
