Campaign Breaks Ground for Athletics and Wellness

On this beautiful autumn day, an exuberant pre-K to 12 Penn Charter community marked the next step in our campus transformation with a ceremonial groundbreaking for the William A. Graham IV OPC '58 Athletics and Wellness Center. We were pleased to announce the naming of the building for Bill Graham, a longtime friend and supporter of Penn Charter and, more recently, of the How Far? capital campaign.

We invite you to visit penncharter.com/graham to enjoy highlights of the day: a virtual tour of the building, our students "passing the shovel" and Bill Graham talking about his own Penn Charter experience.
