SANDRA BULLOCK is to be honoured by the New Orleans, Louisiana school she’s been supporting since Hurricane Katrina.
The actress will be inducted into the Warren Easton High School hall of fame later this month (May09).
The thrilled Miss Congeniality star says, “I feel honoured to have been a very small part in the rebuilding of a city that I have loved since I discovered it, and, like so many, have taken all it has to offer.
“It’s only right that I give back to ensure it has a future. And I have fortunately seen some of that future, graduate from Warren Easton.”
Reports suggest Bullock has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the school since Katrina ravaged the area in 2005.
Arthur Hardy, the school’s hall of fame committee chairman, tells U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, “Sandra did not attend Warren Easton High School, but we proudly claim her as one of our own.”
