ANNOUNCEMENTS

June 1 Happenings in Altoona

June 1 was a busy day for the Class of 1970 in Altoona.  The Oversight Committee for the Class Endowment met to see the area we will be supporting and to discuss plans for disbursing funds.  The group decided that we would allow the fund to grow interest over the winter and will meet again in April 2025 to make the first disbursement.  It's never to late to be a part of this...see the home page for ways to donate.

Following the meeting about 20 classmates had the opportunity to tour the new high school.  You can see pictures from the tour here.  We highly recommend taking a tour if the opportunity opens in the future.

Following the tour about 35 classmates and guests met on the patio at Jethro's for dinner and a chance to catchup.  We had a fantastic evening with perfect weather and good friends.  The pictures of this event can be seen at the link above.


 

Congratulations
 AAHS Class of 1970!

Thanks to your generosity, we have reached our interim goal of $25,000 as the first Altoona Area High School graduating class to create an endowment through the Altoona Area School District (AASD) Foundation to benefit our alma mater.  (In fact, the foundation, as of February 29, reports $25,860 in the account.)

Our next target for the AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund in honor of David and Randi (Kibler) Shellenbarger$35,000!

We encourage every class member to become a partner and share in this endowment, so we can tell our children and grandchildren, friends and neighbors, that as an alumni class, we have created an enduring program to benefit biomedical science studies at the high school for many years to come.  Every contribution is important, and no contribution is too small.  What is more, if we can raise an additional $5,000, an anonymous donor will match that amount, pushing us to or past the $35,000.  We hope our classmates will continue to financially support the fund in the future and provide the ability to do even more. 

If you are interested in more information about the program beneficiary of our class endowment -- the Altoona Biomedical Science Pathway – CLICK HERE (NOTE: this is a big file...may take a few moments to load).

The endowment's Initial Funding Group expects to convene a meeting later this year in Altoona, hosted by the AASD Foundation, to discuss the fund, the Altoona Biomedical Science Pathway program focus, and the fund's future with our local Class of 1970 "mates" who also wish to attend.  Details on this meeting will be forthcoming. 

In the meantime, we hope you, and perhaps your families and friends, will consider further contributions to the endowment.

Directions for contributing are included below:

  1. By Check: payable to AASD Foundation (Please write “AAHS Class of 1970” in the note/memo section of your check.  Checks should be sent to:  AASD Foundation, 1201 8th Avenue, Altoona, PA 16602.

  2. Online (credit card): https://www.aahsalumni.org/.  Simply click the “Donate” link on the menu bar at the top.  Then, click “Donate Online” next to “AASD Foundation”.  The “Campaign/Fund” button will default to the AASD Foundation.  When making your donation, please type: “AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund” in the “Donor Comments” section to make sure the gift is categorized correctly.

Again, please be sure to designate our class fund with your donation so it will count toward the new match.


Again, congratulations and thanks to our AAHS Class of 1970.
