Albany High teacher joins PAL Hall of Fame

ALBANY, N.Y. (April 26, 2017) – Congratulations to Albany High School physical education teacher Ashley Chapple, whose hard work and dedication to the youth of the city have earned her an induction to the Albany Police Athletic League (PAL) Hall of Fame.


Chapple, also an Albany High graduate, first became involved with PAL as a teenager when she joined its Youth Leadership Council during her senior year. She then worked for the organization’s summer camp, becoming a camp director. She continues to play an active role in assisting with PAL events, perhaps most notably when she brought members of the Albany High girls’ basketball team overseas to the country of Georgia on a 20-day trip sponsored by the Department of State.


Her involvement in the community extends beyond PAL and the classroom as well, as Chapple is currently the assistant coach for the Albany High girls’ varsity basketball team, president of the Albany Junior Lady Falcons Youth Basketball Program and a member of the Albany Fund for Education Board of Directors.


PAL recognized Chapple for her efforts along with former Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings and local business leaders Jim and Kathy Morrell at its Breakfast of Champions ceremony April 12.


Chapple is pictured with Albany High student-athletes (L-R): Tyson Jones, Supreme Webb, Noah John, Jaden Gary, Caleb John, Ben Morton, Jarrell Chaney, Elysse Bennett and Dashanna Tanksley. Each of these students also have participated in PAL programming.

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,600 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
