Proviso West Counselor Named State Club Sponsor of the Year

May 23, 2014 02:30 PM
Mr. Charles Jalove, a guidance counselor at Proviso West High School, recently was named the winner of the Illinois Directors of Student Activities (IDSA) Sponsor of the Year Award.

Mr. Jalove is the faculty sponsor of several clubs and events at Proviso West, overseeing the Key Club as well as the school’s overnight sports night in the fall. He received the award at a banquet in April.

"It’s nice being recognized," he said. "I am appreciative. I’m trying to teach the kids that there are people who support us. We don’t strive for this. We’re striving to help the kids."

Mr. Jalove has been a teacher in the Proviso area for 36 years. Mr. Jerry Jenkins, a Proviso West art teacher and the school’s activities coordinator, nominated Mr. Jalove for the award because of his continued work in working with students.

"He volunteers wherever is needed, so it was a no-brainer," Mr. Jenkins said. "His love for the students is so beyond anything. He’s provided more opportunities for community service hours for our seniors than anybody in the building."

Mr. Oscar Hawthorne, principal at Proviso West, said that Mr. Jalove has been a great support for Proviso West.

"Mr. Jalove is always there for the students," Mr. Hawthorne said. "He constantly is looking out for them and providing ways for them to learn and grow. He thoroughly deserves the recognition and I congratulate him on the award."

Congratulations, Mr. Jalove! Thank you for all you do to Keep Proviso Rising!
