  • Chuhak & Tecson recognizes Women's History Month 

    In honor of women everywhere, Chuhak and Tecson, P.C. proudly recognizes Women's History Month. Held in March each year, this month highlights women’s contributions and achievements over the course of history.

    This celebratory month takes root in the socialist and labor movements that spurred the first Women’s Day in 1909. After the United Nations officially recognized International Women’s Day in 1975, a group of feminist activists expressed their conflict with the way U.S. history books largely left out the contributions and stories of women in America. In 1978, they proposed Women’s History Week to coincide with International Women’s Day, and the observance quickly spread to schools around the country. As a result of feminist activists lobbying for a longer observation, Congress passed a proclamation in 1987 that established March as Women’s History Month.

    We invite you to learn more about Women’s History Month, including some of the women whose achievements have helped re-shape our world for the better, like poet Maya Angelou, activist Malala Yousafzai and chemist Rosalind Franklin.

  • 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.
