Dear Alumni,

Heather LinstadWhen I returned to Chelmsford High School in 2016 as the varsity softball coach, the sights and sounds felt familiar; the chatter between teammates, the banging of balls off the gymnasium bleachers, the flags dangling from the rafters representing the CHS sports tradition. After some reflection, I realized how much I had changed; however, my sense of belonging and the comradery I feel as an alumnae has never wavered.

Chelmsford High School allows each student to become the best version of themselves. It shapes each student to be a passionate, strong and giving individuals. The opportunity to be who we choose to be is boundless with the encouragement from the administrators, deans, teaches and coaches. There is never a shortage of smiles or pats on the back in the hallways of CHS.

The Chelmsford High School Alumni Association provides all CHS alumni the opportunity to stay connected with classmates, teachers and memories. It also provides an avenue for alumni to say “Thank You”.

I know my CHS memories continue to make me smile and laugh or receive a surprise “hello” from a classmate in a grocery store, airport or Red Sox game. I am forever grateful to the CHS community for being a part of my journey and that is why I am excited to lead the “Lion’s Pride Endowment Fund”. Please join me by making a gift to support the Chelmsford High School Alumni Association (CHSAA). Your gift will help sustain the legacy for all Chelmsford High School alumni and provide a home for future alumni.

Sincerely yours,

Heather F. Linstad ‘85
