Teachers can make a life-long impact upon their students. This is especially the case at Central where many unique individuals have served on the faculty. Central alumni and alumnae for years after graduating recall the erudition, idiosyncrasies, and lessons taught by these teachers, and realize how important they were in shaping our personal and intellectual development.
The generosity of the 199th class made it possible for the Associated Alumni to institute a Faculty Hall of Fame to honor the faculty’s finest. Created in 1989, the Faculty Hall of Fame is located on the third floor of the school, outside of the cafeteria. Each plaque contains a portrait of the honoree and a note of recognition. Presently, 32 faculty members have been honored in this manner.
The AACHS Faculty Hall of Fame committee meets periodically to discuss recommendations for induction. Recommendations are sought from graduates. Please send details to the alumni office via mail to AACHS, P.O. Box 26580, Philadelphia, PA 19141-6580 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
