The Reynold Ellis Raise Our Voice Fund

The Reynold Ellis Raise Our Voice Fund was created to honor the legacy of the High School’s beloved Choir Director, Mr. Reynold Ellis, who led with dignity and was the hallmark of what a teacher should be to students.

The Class of 1970 is working with the Shaker Schools Foundation and Shaker’s new choir director, Nick LaPete, to reinvigorate this fund and to help the next generation of choir students.

Please learn more about the legacy of Mr. Ellis and support this fund.
