Alumni Society

"The Penn Charter Alumni Society was formed by a group of graduates who wished to keep during their lives the friendships formed in school days as well as memories of the events while at Penn Charter. They wished further to have the opportunity of meeting together where old times could be discussed, where they could meet the newer alumni as well as the older ones. They realized that to be entirely successful they must not only have an interest in themselves, but also an active and real interest in the undergraduates of the school."
So wrote Wharton L. Donaldson, president of Penn Charter's new Alumni Society, in the November 1934 issue of Penn Charter Magazine.

"In school you continually look forward to the day when you will graduate. That is a natural and always present school thought. It is the end of school for each one—but—do not allow graduation to be the end of your Penn Charter associations. Join the Alumni Society as you graduate, and Penn Charter past, present, and future, will always be with you."

Penn Charter's strong alumni base has supported this old school even long before 1934. The Alumni Society leads this support and encourages continued involvement to Old Penn Charter through personal connection, financial support and participation in alumni-centered events. OPCs are invited to cheer at PC/GA Day, enjoy each other's company at the Downtown Reception, reminisce at OPC Weekend, network at regional receptions and play at the Bert Linton Golf Outing.

The Alumni Society is pleased to present the the Alumni Senior Award, the Alumni Award of Merit, the OPC Vision Award, Honorary 1689 diplomas and the John F. Gummere Teacher Award.

We encourage alumni to remain connected to Penn Charter and the Alumni Society. If you would like to learn more about serving on the board of directors, contact PC's director of alumni relations, Chris Rahill, for details.
