The Foundation for Pottstown Education recently showcased a few memorabilia items that were donated to the Pottstown School District Alumni Gallery at their May Board Meeting. 

Among the items were three report cards from 1915-1918, a brick from the Pottstown High School when it was located at Chestnut and Penn Streets, a pin and class ring from 1949.

These items will be placed in the Alumni Gallery for visitor to view when touring the center. 

The Alumni Gallery is located in the Pottstown High School and was funded by donations to the Foundation for Pottstown Education. 

The Gallery, a one of a kind facility for school districts, showcases the history of the Pottstown School District.

These items were donated by Edith McAllister and Twyla Miller. Our thanks go out to them and to their families for the donations helping to preserving the history of the Pottstown School District.

Howard Brown, chair of the Pottstown Pride Society a committee of the Foundation for Pottstown Education, will be developing a committee of Pottstown Alumni for the Gallery.
