Supporting Scholarships at George School Through PA Tax Credit Programs

In the last three years, Pennsylvania businesses committed to education have gifted nearly $400,000 to George School through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs. These tax credit programs provide Pennsylvania students access to a transformative educational experience by directly supporting the school’s financial aid program.

Three Outstanding Teachers Praised

Terry Culleton, Ralph Lelii, and Paul Machemer ’65 were celebrated at the George School Closing Banquet on Tuesday, June 11, 2019. Members of the faculty and staff came together to say their thanks and goodbyes to this year’s retiring faculty. “George School cherishes their contributions to the school’s critical effort to be a unique community of learning,” said Head of School Sam Houser.

Celebrating Terry Culleton

Carl Jung believed that the origin of evil in the world is the fact that people are not able to tell their stories. Students too have their dreams and forgetting that is to forget the essence of this thing we do. Terry Culleton has been dedicated his whole career to letting students tell their stories, to look inside and awaken rather than outside and to simply dream.

Celebrating Paul Machemer ’65

Paul Machemer ’65 has faith in his students. He teaches, he coaches, he encourages, he inspires. Soon his conviction becomes their confidence, their willingness to work hard and take risks. Coaching in the classroom, teaching on the field or court, Paul’s standards are high, his expectations aspirational, his results kind of phenomenal.

Celebrating Ralph Lelii

Ralph Lelii has given his students and advisees unconditional respect. He’s made IB students feel that their hard work is valued and valuable. For Ralph the stewardship of students’ intellectual development and emotional well-being has been a sacred trust.
