ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our deepest condolences to classmate Rick Wilt and his family on the passing of his father, Philip E. Wilt.  He was 93.


 

Think it would be nice for locals in the Altoona area to possibly get together for a couple of hours.
Possibly during the week since you may have grandchildren visiting on weekends.

THANK YOU 😊


 

Class Endowment Fund Progress

                                              

 

AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund
in honor of David and Randi (Kibler) Shellenbarger

Please join us in supporting our high school!

In spring 2022, several members of the Altoona Area High School Class of 1970 partnered with the Altoona Area School District (AASD) Foundation to  launch a new endowment fund to benefit our high school.  We have since renamed it the “AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund in honor of David and Randi (Kibler) Shellenbarger" to recognize the sustained efforts of Dave and Randi to keep us united more than 50 years after our graduation.  Dave has also agreed to serve on a new committee, discussed more below, to help guide and oversee the fund with the Foundation.

The new endowment fund has just passed $15,000 – more than half its overall goal of $25,000 – in less than a year.  The fund was created as “a gift in perpetuity” to benefit the high school.  In fact, the Class of 1970 is the first class to utilize a named endowment with the Foundation, which will literally “pay dividends” to the school for years to come.

We appreciate that some of our classmates have already added their contributions to the new fund -- thanks so much.

We need your support:

  • Please consider a contribution (either one-time or ongoing) during this holiday season or in the months ahead to help reach our goal Simple directions for contributing are below.
    Under the AASD Foundation, our tax-deductible contributions will be pooled and invested until the $25,000 goal is reached.  A small committee of approximately six class donors is now being formed to monitor and to help guide the new fund and, in consultation with the Foundation and in accordance with its rules, to determine how proceeds might best aid the high school.

  • We are seeking two additional members of our class who have contributed to the fund to serve on the new committee.  If you are interested, please contact our class website (info@aahs1970.com). 

As always, questions can be directed to the website (info@aahs1970.com) or to Paula Foreman at the AASD Foundation by email (pforeman@altoonasd.com) or phone (814-946-8424)

Thanks, and best wishes for this holiday season and for 2023!

AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund

In spring 2022, several members of the Altoona Area High School Class of 1970, in part to commemorate their belated 50th reunion, partnered with the Altoona Area School District (AASD) Foundation to launch the “AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund.” 

The new endowment fund, currently with contributions/pledges of more than $7,000 and an overall goal of $25,000, was created as “a gift in perpetuity” to benefit the high school.  The Class of 1970 is the first class to utilize a named endowment, which will literally “pay dividends” to the school for many years to come. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and contribute (either one-time or ongoing) to make this project a success.

Under the AASD Foundation, our tax-deductible contributions, will be pooled and invested until the $25,000 goal is reached sometime in the next few years.  A small committee of class donors along with the foundation will be established to monitor and help guide the fund and determine how proceeds might best aid the high school.

The endowment fund will be discussed briefly at the AAHS Class of 1970 reunion on Saturday, July 30, 2022, in Altoona.  Questions can always be directed to our website (info@aahs1970.com) or to Paula Foreman at the AASD Foundation by email (pforeman@altoonasd.com) or phone (814-946-8424).
