'Yesterday and Today'

"The one goal I set for myself concerning Pride Week 2017 was to revive an honored tradition at our new Chicopee High School, restoring a tarnished image to its original meaning and intent. I expected Pride Week to be a spontaneous celebration of good feeling about our city, our school, and ourselves.

I do not want this celebration to become stale and routine; I want it to grow and change each year as does the school it honors. New events and ideas were introduced with this thought in mind.

During my 25 years as Pride Week coordinator, one goal has always been realized: a sincere understanding and recognition of respect, self-respect, and class in our daily lives. I believe one of the strongest aspects of Pride Week 2016 was making all events available to all students. We are one school, and my belief is that we should celebrate as one school. I put much more time into the organization of this Pride Week than any preceding it, and I believe the extra effort resulted in new success. Pride Week is a big job which I could not even attempt without the immeasurable help I receive each year from colleagues and students alike. All the feedback I have received has confirmed my belief that Pride Week 2016 was an event that will long be remembered for all the right reasons. The games are over; the attitude never quits. Pride is the catalyst to the realization of all dreams"...

"Pride is the dignity and self-respect one attains, not from victory, but rather from making the honest, ultimate effort to achieve success. Pride is satisfaction in the joy of sharing. Pride is teamwork. CHS students exhibit pride in their ability to compete as a class while always maintaining unity as one school. CHS has always been more than an institute for learning; it is a home in which to grow."
