Each year, Harriton High School Student Council puts on our well-renowned, school-wide charity talent show in late February, Dr. Harriton. The event features 10 student contestants who perform dances, talents, and other exciting acts in hopes of being crowned as the next Dr. Harriton. Dr. Harriton is the biggest event at our school, with over 1,000 attendees every year. Last year’s show was a tremendous success, raising over $35,000 for charity. We are hoping to continue this trend for Dr. Harriton 2020, our 13th annual show, by directing all proceeds from the event toward two local nonprofits: the Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund and the ESF Dream Camp Foundation. Both of these organizations aim to make education more financially accessible to young students in the greater Philadelphia Area.
Here are the contestants for Dr. Harriton 2021!
The Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund: The Scholarship Fund provides need-based scholarships to recent graduates of LMSD’s Harriton and Lower Merion High Schools. Since its founding in 1964, the Scholarship Fund has provided over 4,000 grants to our students, totaling over $3,000,000 toward higher education. Learn more at https://lmtsf.org/.
Philabundance: As the largest hunger relief organization in the area, Philabundance provides food to those in need in the greater Philadelphia area. In addition to providing food, Philabundance also advocates for policies that increase the accessibility of food. With a mission to drive hunger from our communities and end hunger forever, their role is more prevalent this year than ever before; the global COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly taken a toll on many members of our community financially, and access to food is less readily available than in normal times.
