Pasadena Now - Alverno Students Giving Back to the Local Community as Ambassadors for the Tournament of Roses

Although Alverno Heights Academy was closed for Christmas Break for the last two weeks, that didn’t mean its students stopped giving back in the local community! Over the last 10 days, three of Alverno’s seniors committed a great deal of time to volunteering as Ambassadors for the Tournament of Roses – Rose Parade. Ali Mercado ’18, Nikki Oberhammer ’18, and Evina Wang ’18 volunteered over 40 hours as Ambassadors as they helped to provide tours of the float barns prior to the parade, work events like Bandfest, and guide guests during the Post Parade events. Evina ’18 even helped to provide the first official Mandarin tour of a float barn along with another student. Alverno congratulates Ali, Nikki, and Evina for their hard work and thanks them for representing Alverno.

About Alverno Heights Academy

Alverno Heights Academy is an all-girls, independent, progressive Catholic, college preparatory school dedicated to its mission of empowering each young woman to be exactly the person she wants to be. Located on the property of the former Barlow Estate in Sierra Madre, California, Alverno Heights Academy was founded in 1960 by the Sisters of St. Francis who sought to create an environment in the San Gabriel Valley where young women could become informed and knowledgeable persons. Later renamed Alverno High School and sponsored by the Immaculate Heart Community, Alverno’s program—academic, spiritual, aesthetic, social, and physical—has been shaped by the staff, trustees, and students. As Alverno Heights Academy once again, the school remains committed to its mission by encouraging each of their young women to be who they imagine.
