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.

Sewickley played their cross town rival Quaker Valley Thursday night. It was a beautiful night for a game of soccer. Both teams played evenly throughout the first half, however, QV scored off a free kick to take a 1-0 lead. Their second goal came off a cross with about 6 minutes left in the half. The second half saw more of the same as QV scored there third goal of the game to make a commanding lead. Sewickley had some chances in both halves, however, couldn't find the back of the net.
