Class of '71 Congratulates the AHHS Rocketry Program Students

The AHHS Rocketry Program needs our help with funding their White Sands trip.

At our 45th Reunion Dinner last November, Mr. Paul Foerster announced that the AHHS Rocketry Program is in need of new sources of funding for the continuation of the program, and would gratefully accept donations from our class.  

One of our '71 class members annonymously pledged $1,000, and challenged the rest of the class members to contribute any amounts toward this valuable program for these future rising stars.

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!
