The generosity of our community has allowed our school to thrive in good times and in challenging ones. Thanks to our donors, our community has many stories of hope and perseverance to share this year.
Chris D’Angelo ’98 has loyally supported the Fund for AFS as a way of paying it forward for the scholarships he received as a student, which he says made his education possible.
“My time at AFS laid the groundwork for my success in college and in my career, and I will be forever grateful and fond of the school,” says D’Angelo, who played soccer at AFS and earned the Thode Award. “This year, I offered a challenge grant on the Day of Giving to encourage fellow alumni to join me in supporting the Fund for AFS. I was heartened to see 30 alumni answer the call to action, and I hope we can continue to grow our alumni support.”
D’Angelo, who attended Lehigh University and is now a partner at KPMG, lives in Horsham with his wife Katie and their three children. He has loyally supported AFS for more than a decade and been a leadership donor for most of that time.
“We all received so much from our time on campus, and it’s important for us to help make that experience possible for students today,” says D’Angelo.
