Thank You to HCST Schools

On February 22, 2016 County Prep Science teacher, Tim O’Donnell and his five-year-old daughter Bridget were killed in a tragic car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike Hudson County Extension. Immediately following this event, there was a tremendous and very generous outpouring of donations from County Prep High School, High Tech High School and Explorer 2000 staff, students, and their families. As a result, a 529 College Savings Plan with Franklin Templeton was opened for Allessandra O’Donnell in the amount of $11,590.00. Tim would occasionally joke about not retiring until he had enough money saved for college. It is with his wishes in mind that the account was opened. On behalf of County Prep High School, we want to thank everyone who helped to bring this to fruition. Mr. O’ Donnell and Bridie were very much loved and are greatly missed. As Tim and Bridie’s one year anniversary approaches, it is with sadness but also some comfort that we thank everyone for their generosity and thoughtfulness in helping to pave the way for Allessandra O’Donnell’s future education and success.
