Tenth grader Ilona is always ready to provide an assist. Whether it’s on the field or in study hall, Ilona’s willingness to lend a helping hand is evident to her teammates and classmates. A captain on the Varsity Field Hockey
team, Illona is coaching the next generation of athletes at Ellis—she even started a skill-building clinic
for middle schoolers to introduce them to the sport.
Working hard comes naturally to this Ellis lifer. When she’s not practicing her passing and positioning, she’s challenging herself in AP Computer Science and mastering new songs on the acoustic guitar.
