Spreading Smiles in Ghana

Cassandra Keith Garcia (Class of 2018) recently traveled to Ghana as part of a two-week Operation Smile mission. As a trained volunteer, Cassandra interacted with the children who were about to undergo corrective surgeries for cleft lip or cleft palate, and provided the patients’ families with information about dental hygiene, burn care and prevention, nutrition, oral rehydration therapy, CPR, and the Heimlich Maneuver.

Cultural Celebration

Joining with their peers across the United States, members of the Academy’s French Club and French Honor Society led AHA’s annual observance of National French Week. The Angels organized multiple events to celebrate French culture and its importance on the world stage. The related photo includes Abigail Allport running the Bake Sale, and Olivia Hagopian, Lucy McAuliffe, and Camila Correa.

Heartwarming Tradition

Several Angels took a road trip to Philadelphia to celebrate Saint Nicholas Day with some young friends from Saint Peter the Apostle School. The students enjoyed various activities together during this traditional holiday visit. At the end of the day, the Angels received a special blessing for their trip home.
