Sandra Bullock's $25,000 high school donation earns her top honour

The Miss Congeniality star cut the big cheque to officials at Warren Eason Charter High School in New Orleans earlier this year (12) and now she's set to be inducted into its Hall of Fame for her generous contributions on 18 May (12).

As part of the ceremony, Bullock's funds will be divided among several graduating seniors in need of financial assistance as they prepare to further their education, according to Fox News.

The actress has a strong connection to the area - her adopted son Louis was born in the city, and in 2010 Bullock helped open an on-campus health clinic at the school after it sustained more than $4 million (£2.5 million) in damages in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

School board member Arthur Hardy previously praised Bullock's philanthropy, saying, "She has been our angel. We love her."
