The Foundation for Pottstown Education showcased a few memorabilia items that were donated to the Pottstown School District Alumni Gallery. Among the items were three report cards from 1915-1916, a brick from PHS when it was located at Chestnut and Penn Streets and a pin and class ring from 1949.
The items will be placed in the Alumni Gallery for visitors to view when touring the center. The Alumni Gallery is located at the high school and was funded by donations to the Foundation for Pottstown Education. The Gallery, a one of a kind for school districts, showcases the history of the district.
The items were donated by Edith McAllister and Twyla Miller. Our thanks go out to them and to their families for the donations helping to preserve the history of the Pottstown School District.
Howard Brown, Chair of the Pottstown Pride Society and a board member of the Foundation will be developing a committee of Pottstown Alumni for the Gallery. People interested in volunteering for this committee should contact the Foundation at: 610 970-6616
