Sandra Bullock is giving kids someone to look up to ever since she donated $25,000 in scholarship money to the Warren Easton Charter High School in New Orleans.

The school was destroyed in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina and Bullock has given a helping hand in any way possible for many years now and continues to do so, Fox8Live.com reports.

Because of her charitable donations, the high school is inducting Bullock, along with seven other friends and alums, into the 2012 Warren Easton Hall of Fame. During the ceremony, $53,000 in scholarship money will be handed out to Easton students.

The Hall of Fame is known for awarding more than $250,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors, providing the school with supplies and equipment, and giving faculty cash awards.

Bullock’s generosity shouldn’t come as a surprise, as she isn’t shy when it comes to helping others. If you recall, she donated $1 million to the American Red Cross’ Japan relief effort and $1 million to Doctors Without Borders after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

The 47-year-old actress will be honored on May 18 in Easton’s auditorium.
