CHS staff gathers to celebrate Rose Porpora's retirement.
Chatham High School teachers and administrators gathered at Cafe Beethoven Friday to celebrate the retirement of Rosemary "Rose" Porpora, who has been a teacher for 35 years. Porpora's retirement was approved by the Board of Education in April. As part of the retirement party, Terrence Ferguson, another English teacher at Chatham High, played the theme to "Romeo and Juliet," which Porpora teaches. Other staff members conducted interviews with past and present students and created a video for the occasion.
