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

Five of our team mates played in the Qualifier at Shadow Lakes. We had high hopes for several of the girls to move on to the finals at Diamond Run. Two of the girls prevailed : Tatum shooting the medalist round of 76, and Zoe shooting a great score of 84. I have a lot of confidence in these two going forward into the next round. Brianna and Lexie only missed the cut by a few strokes and Haley, after a rough start, fired a 54 on the front nine!
