Remembering mr. schug  

It is with heavy hearts and fond memories that we report the passing of John Schug Hon. 1689. Mr. Schug taught Upper School English at Penn Charter from 1962 to 1994 and touched many lives inside and outside of the PC community. "Old Bean," as he was referred to by many of his students, made an everlasting impact on Penn Charter, and we hold him and his family in the light. The Schug family has asked that OPCs who may want to honor Mr. Schug do so by making a gift in his memory to the Penn Charter Annual Fund.
