  • Chuhak & Tecson recognizes National Disability Independence Day

    Throughout the year and on National Disability Independence Day, Chuhak & Tecson emphasizes the importance of equality and inclusion in the workplace. National Disability Independence Day commemorates the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26, 1990. The ADA provides protection from employment discrimination as well as better access to goods, services and communications for people with disabilities. We are cognizant of the progress made since the signing of the ADA and this year are proud to recognize the 30th anniversary of National Disability Independence Day.

    For more information about the countdown to the anniversary, visit the ADA National Network.

  • glenhagen farm retreat, an educational and spiritual retreat

  •  

    Chuhak & Tecson principal Andy Tecson and his wife, Nancy Hagen, established the not for profit glenhagen farm retreat  to provide youth from all walks of life with the opportunity to experience the extraordinary wonders of the ecosystems. The farm, which offers educational and worship opportunities related to the arts, religion, ecosystems, astronomy and sustainable agriculture, welcomes schools, colleges, churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and other houses of worship, and also not for profit corporations, that seek a place to grow, experience and explore the wonders of God’s creation. 

    Amenities added since the farm’s opening—a volleyball court, raised garden bed, fire pit for campfires and stone paths—were well-used by campers who visited in summer 2019 such as Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, Harmony Community Church, Kingsley School’s Girl Scouts, League of United Latin American Citizens, Project Exploration, Refugee Education & Adventure CHallenge, and West Town Bikes.
