Many happy returns

“Much of what we do today is because of the vision of Chuck’s parents.” With those words, Matheny President Steve Proctor recently wished Chuck Matheny a happy 73rd birthday. Chuck’s parents, Walter and Marguerite Matheny, founded The Matheny School in 1946 at a time when there were very few schools for children with disabilities.

Peapack-Gladstone Police Chief Greg Skinner presented Chuck with a special United States flag, and Peapack-Gladstone Mayor William Horton offered congratulations and said he was “blessed to be a next-door neighbor of Matheny.”
