About Chester Alumni Association

  • The Chester Alumni Association was started in the early 1900’s. It is one of only three active alumni associations in the state that invite all graduates to the annual dinner/business meeting. This is achieved by an annual mailing of more than 2,500 letters. Due to the ever growing list of graduates, it is very important that the association receives any address changes. This may be done on their website chsnyalumni.com or by sending to notice to the following address, Chester Alumni Association, PO Box 544, Chester, NY, 10918. 

    Every year the Chester Alumni Association awards 4 scholarships. The generous donations from the membership each year support these scholarships. The Ruth Parkin Carroll Scholarship, the Chester Alumni Scholarship and the Chester Alumni Vocational/Tech Award are given to Chester Academy seniors at graduation. The fourth Scholarship is awarded to a descendant of a Chester Alumni and has been given at Chester Academy as well as all over the United States. Information about these scholarships and downloadable applications are available on their website, chsnyalumni.com.
