President – William Penn Charter School Alumni Society Board: 2001 - 2003


William Penn Charter School (commonly known as Penn Charter or simply PC) is an independent school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, founded in 1689 at the urging of William Penn as the "Public Grammar School" and chartered in 1689 to be operated by the "Overseers of the public School, founded by Charter in the town & County of Philadelphia" in Pennsylvania. It is the oldest Quaker school in the world, the oldest elementary school in Pennsylvania, and the fifth oldest elementary school in the United States following The Collegiate School (1628), Boston Latin School (1635), Hartford Public High School (1638), and Roxbury Latin (1645).


"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
