Formerly known as the Special Recognition Award, the Steel Award, named for former Head of School Frank Steel, honors an alumnus who, over the course of many years, has made unique contributions and shown an outstanding and extraordinary devotion to the school.
In recognition of his 35 years of service to CHA and then SCH Academy, the CHA Alumni Association is happy to present this year’s award to John E. McArdle ’73. A longtime teacher, coach, and mentor, John is a member of the CHA Athletic Hall of Fame. Prior to his retirement this year, his influence on campus was felt in the gym, in the classroom, and on the field. John and his family are strong supporters of our students through endowed funds.
