A Message from the Head of School on Violence and Hate Language Directed at the AAPI Community
Dear Sewickley Academy Community,
In the past year, there has been an upturn in violence and hate language directed at American Asian and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) across the United States. It has been difficult to capture and absorb the multiple moments of pain that many in this extended community have experienced.
It is with great sadness and a profound sense of loss that we share with the community that James E. Cavalier, our revered founding Head of Senior School, passed on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, at age 93 due to complications from COVID-19.
