Whenever possible, the McCaskey Alumni Association seeks to assist McCaskey High School in making practical and aesthetic improvements to the campus. Some of these improvements have enabled us to honor the service of alumni who served in the Armed Forces.
Our most recent installation is a plaque that was dedicated in the J.P. McCaskey High School lobby on November 8, 2019. It lists the names of the 18 McCaskey students who were killed in action in the Vietnam War.
The Alumni Association has pledged the funds to install a digital marquee, which will soon be the fresh new face of the McCaskey Campus.
A Pennsylvania State Historical Marker honoring Olympic champion and McCaskey alumnus Barney Ewell ’38 was dedicated on N. Reservoir St. on October 17, 2018.
Alumni Association efforts led to the lighting of the J.P. McCaskey tower.
