CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham Education Foundation has donated more than $1 million to the Chatham Board of Education since 1997 and regularly builds on that total.
At the most recent BOE meeting on Monday night, the CEF wasn't the only financial contributor since it was joined by John Galiher, CEO of Preferred Freezer Services located at 1 Main Street in Chatham.
The BOE accepted a donation of $10,000 from Preferred Freezer Services for the Chatham High Robotics team for "robot building materials, machines, uniforms or transportation needs."
The Chatham Education Foundation's latest check for $5,598.10 was handed over personally by Sally Allen at the BOE meeting. The CEF donation goes toward funding CHS Puylse Lens and Lighting Kit; Using the Sphero Robot in the Geometry Classroom at Chatham High and Literacy Book Clubs at Milton Avenue School.
In other business, Chatham Superintendent Dr. Michael LaSusa announced the teachers who have achieved tenure in the school district. The educators in attendance stood up as they were named in the video below.
