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.

On a beautiful day at the par 72 Blackhawk golf course five of our guys qualified for the WPIAL Individual Championships, and a sixth player missed by one stroke, shooting an 80. The target score was 79 as 5 SA and 2 QV players qualified from the section. It was a meaningful experience for all six of our players as it an unusual setting to have to worry about a target score.
