TCHS Students Continue to Demonstrate
their Commitment to Community
Technical College High School (TCHS) Pickering Campus had a productive fall semester!
Here are just a few of the great things that happened:
TCHS Holiday Hope Chest Helps Over
Families Celebrate the Holidays in
Northern Chester County
Students from all three Chester County Intermediate Unit
(CCIU) Technical College High School (TCHS) campuses and
the Child and Career Development Center (CCDC) brought
an abundance of hope to Chester County families in need
this year through the Holiday Hope Chest program. Holiday
Hope Chest is a charity event that provides a free day of
shopping for Chester County residents in need.
Families are referred to the Holiday Hope Chest by
community organizations and then receive a voucher to shop
at the store, which consists of new and gently used items
such as toys, books, accessories, electronics and clothing.
TCHS Pickering Campus held its event on December 14,
2019. Over 100 student, faculty and community volunteers
served over 150 families at this event.
TCHS Pickering Student Receives
Daughters of the American Revolution
Good Citizen’s Award
A student from the Technical College High School (TCHS)
Pickering Campus demonstrated that good citizenship always
pays dividends. Michaelia Kelley, a full-time TCHS Pickering
student, received the Daughters of the American Revolution
(DAR) Good Citizen’s Award. The DAR Good Citizen’s Award is
a competition in which regional schools can nominate a student
whom they believe exemplifies the traits of a good citizen.
Nominated students must write a 500 word essay in two hours
or less with no reference materials. This year’s essay topic was
focused on how the youth of America might be energized to
become more effective citizens.
Kelley, who is a Cosmetology student, focused her essay on
education and the importance of including youth in public
policy considerations and discussions. As someone who aspires
to help people and raise awareness for social issues, Kelley
recognizes the value of having conversations with people from
all walks of life in order to become better informed about
the issues that are impacting both young people and the
community. “I may not be able to change the whole country,
but even if I can help one person in my community, I would
consider that a success,” said Kelley.
