Tony Dungy and Mark Nordenberg to Speak at Manchester Academic

Charter School’s 15th Anniversary Celebration.

The Manchester Academic Charter School (MACS) will hold its 15th Anniversary Celebration on

Saturday, August 24, 2013 at the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild, 1815 Metropolitan Street,

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15233. A VIP Reception will be held from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The

Celebration Program is from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM, with a Reception immediately following.

General Admission tickets are $100 and VIP tickets are $250.

NFL Television Analyst, Author, and Retired NFL Head Coach Tony Dungy is the Honorary

deliver the Keynote Address; and KDKA-TV News Anchor Kimberly Gill will be the MC.

Board Chair Carl Cooper and Chief Executive Officer Vasilios Scoumis will also speak at the

event.

MACS has operated as an independent charter school since 1998, with strong roots in the

Manchester community reaching back over 40 years.

School founders Dr. Betty and Rev. James Robinson established the Manchester Youth

Development Center (MYDC) in 1968 to serve the needs of Manchester’s large population of

children and youth. They expanded their focus to early childhood in 1979 with the opening of the

Training Wheels community preschool, and again in the early 1990s, when they founded a small,

community-centered, private elementary school located within MYDC.

In 1998, the Pittsburgh Board of Education granted a charter to MACS, one of the first in the

region. Today, MACS, MYDC and Training Wheels operate in a shared facility, providing highquality

education and enrichment to children from early childhood through middle school.

MACS serves over 250 children from the Northside and communities throughout Allegheny

County.
