Thanks to the support and encouragement I received at Alverno, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and pursue an advanced art class. Then, in sophomore year, I decided to become a part of the Hair and Makeup crew for the plays and musicals. Thanks to Alverno, I was able to discover my creative side.

In addition to attending @layouthday last week, a few of our students also had the opportunity to attend Religious Education Congress at the Anaheim Convention Center. Religious Education Congress, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Office of Religious Education, is the nation's largest annual gathering of Roman Catholics. This year's theme was "Rise Up" and the girls, along with Campus Minister Ms. Katharine Guerrero, got to enjoy speakers and workshops from Catholic leaders across the country! #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #AlvernoCampusMinistry #ADLA #catholicschoolspride

@alvernoheights would like to extend a very special congratulations to alumna Joanne (Larkin) Harabedian '69 who was recognized as a "Woman of Distinction" for the city of Sierra Madre by Assemblymember Chris Holden last week! Joanne currently serves as the Principal of @stritaschoolsm (St. Rita School) in #SierraMadre, a role she has held for the last 12 years although she began teaching at St. Rita in 1991. In her position, Joanne is an outstanding leader to her students, staff, and larger community. Under her leadership, the school has continued to improve and grow, while attracting a diverse set of families and students. We are so proud to not only call Joanne an alumna but a partner in Catholic education in Sierra Madre. Congratulations Joanne! #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #AlvernoAlumnae #CityofSierraMadre #ChrisHolden #StRitaSchool

Today, fifteen of our @alvernoheights students are attending @layouthday at the Anaheim Convention Center. This morning, the girls participated in a Mass officiated by Archbishop Jose Gomez before hearing from keynote speaker Katie Prejean about her own spiritual journey. The afternoon will include two special workshops focused on faith and service! In addition to attendees, two of our seniors Ally Mercado ‘18 and Anica Quizon ‘18 are also working at Youth Day today. Anica assisted with the Mass this morning and Ally will be introducing a panel later this afternoon. Great job ladies- we’re so proud of you! #alvernoheightsacademy #alvernoheights60 #alvernocampusministry #youthday2018 #layouthday #catholicschoolpride #adla
