Senior Alina Mattson Reflects on her Second Trip to Haiti
I had an opportunity to travel to Haiti with an organization called Work my junior year at Sewickley Academy. What struck me about this organization was their integration into the communities and their promise to make families self-sufficient instead of offering outside solutions that would fix their problems short term. They do this by making sure both parents are in stable jobs and their children are placed in school. While in Haiti, we got to see first hand how Work functions and what they strive to achieve.
Senior Selected as Candidate in the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program
Senior Aydin Turkay has been named one of more than 4,500 candidates in the 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. The candidates were selected from nearly 3.6 million students expected to graduate from U.S. high schools this year.
Although we won the match by a large margin, the score doesn’t tell the whole story. Your girls stayed focused and played to the best of their ability in spite of the slow pace of play, and lack of experience on their opponents part. What I was most impressed with however, was how kind and helpful the girls were to their opponents who were struggling and getting very frustrated. The other wonderful thing that happened was that we gained a new player, Haley, to round out our team (thanks to Tatum!). We welcome Haley and look forward to her progress through the year!
Tatum - 38 Medalist Zoe - 43 Brianna - 46 Lexie - 50 Haley - played exhibition - played her first 6 holes and played remarkably well, beating all the other players in her group.
