  • Alumnus of the Year Award: W. Anthony Hitschler ’56

    The Alumnus of the Year Award, intended to be given annually, is awarded to an alumnus for outstanding service to the association or to CHA. While not restricted to contributions made during the year in which it is given, that was its original intent, with exceptions made on occasion to recognize service and contributions to the school over a period of time.

    In appreciation of his longstanding support of CHA and now SCH Academy, the CHA Alumni Association is pleased to present Alumnus of the Year to Tony Hitschler ’56. A former trustee, Tony is passionate about entrepreneurship and innovation in education. He was the visionary behind the Class of 1956 Education Forum last year and is instrumental in bringing speakers to campus to help advance the mission of the school. Tony served as member of the transition team for incoming Head of School, Dr. Stephen L. Druggan.

    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.
