Senior School History Teacher Travels to South Korea for Professional Development
This past July, I traveled to South Korea with a group of American educators with the generous support of the Korean War Legacy Foundation and Sewickley Academy.

It's always fun to compete with Shady Side Academy, and today's match was a good preparation for both teams for next week's team playoffs. In his final match at Allegheny, senior Peter Curran shot his first under par round in official competition! Many thanks to our four seniors, Will, Cole, Peter and Dave for all that you have done for our program throughout the years and for making this such a fun season! Hopefully, our season will last a little bit longer.
