AH Graduates, Chuck Sullivan and his sister Gail had both passed away in 2014.  The Alamo Heights High School rocketry class, in the summer of 2015, paid honor to the Sullivans with the launch of their rocket in a competition from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Thanks to Gary Gates and Gates Metal & Fabrication, a touching tribute to Gail and Chuck was painted on both sides of the rocket as it soared to a height of over 34,000 feet, a salute to Chuck & Gail, which was seen from the heavens!
