Pottstown Grad Accomplishes What Few Ever Do

HE’S REACHED THE SUMMIT – Gentry Khile Brownie (above and at top), a 1986 graduate of Pottstown High School and one of its former outstanding wrestlers, has reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest free standing mountain in the world, according to Pottstown School District Director of Community Relations John Armato. Brownie attained his goal of making it to the top on his 50th birthday. “Coming over that snowy peak while the sun was rising on the start of my 50th year was so deep … so exhilarating … so exhausting … so humbling … so triumphant … it all hit me at once. Whoa … it was an amazing way to start the next chapter of my life,” he recently reported to Armato.
