Sewickley Academy Junior wins Congressional Art Award
Junior Priya Melonio received an award from the Congressional Art Competition for her oil-painting “Kindred.” The winning piece will be displayed in Congressmen Mike Kelly’s personal office in Washington, D.C. for the next year.
On May 15, 2017, Sewickley Academy’s Senior School gathered in Rea Auditorium to honor the academic, athletic, and artistic achievements of students during the annual Awards Ceremony which included an induction presentation for the newest members of the Cum Laude Society.
In 2004, a strategic plan was developed that included input from 700 members of the Academy community. Centered on these strategic goals, the PICTURE THIS Campaign was launched in 2007 as the most ambitious fundraising effort in school history. The campaign, chaired by Nancy Means '72, Jeffrey Lenchner '77, and Amy Simmons Sebastian '80 added $15 million to the school's endowment - funding many innovative projects that enhanced the educational experience for all students.
