Cheltenham High School
Class of 1965
50th Reunion

Class Gift to CHS


CHS '65 Class Gift to CHS

The reunion committee is pleased to announce that our class has made a gift of a 3D printer to Cheltenham High School. Emmy Brecker contacted the CHS principal, found out that they really wanted this item, and she made all of the arrangements. This was made possible through a combination of "profits" from our large turnout (break-even was around 160, and we had 268 attendees – 195 classmates, 71 guests, and 2 former teachers), and classmate donations we didn't need to use for classmate financial aid.

The gift was announced in the school district newsletter.
In addition, information about this gift appeared in the Times Chronicle (our local Cheltenham newspaper).

Cheltenham School District - New Teaching Tool
"Students in Cheltenham High School's advanced building structures class and technical drawing class are enjoying lessons thanks to Terry Sullivan's newest teaching tool, a 3D printer. The printer was made possible, in large, by a donation made to Cheltenham High School by the Class of 1965. The gift came to life after the the Class of 65's hugely successful 50th reunion last June. Shortly after the reunion, class members decided to present their alma mater with a $2,500 donation toward the state of the art technology. Sullivan and his students are now experimenting with various programs and developing actual 3D printer creations such as a Pythagoras cup and a full chess set."

Here are some pictures of the gift being used by current CHS students.
