In honor of Deborah White, the late Cheryl Irving, Elizabeth Glascott and Elizabeth Flemming, pictured left to right, the Women’s Legacy Scholarship Fund has been established by OPC female student athletes in celebration of the first 20 years of girls athletics at Penn Charter. Together, these four women dedicated more than 100 years of their lives to educating girls at Penn Charter, both in and out of the classroom.

The Women's Legacy Fund, providing financial aid to female student athletes who demonstrate the qualities of leadership, persistence and dedication, supported its first three female student athletes in 2013-14! 


Celebrating Girls, Athletics and Four Teacher Coaches
