Alverno Ambassadors Participate in Cancer Support Community Event

It was such an honor for the Alverno ambassadors to be a part of the @cscpasadena event! These four wonderful students spent the night welcoming guests, hosting, helping with set up and even took over the Cancer Support Community Instagram page!

It was also an honor to share the evening with Ellen F. DrIscoll ’72 who is a member of Alverno Heights Academy (AHA) Board of Trustees and she has served on the board of the Cancer Support Community of Pasadena as the Chair of Strategic Planning Committee.

Thank you to @cscpasadena for all you do for the community and thank you to the ambassadors for always making Alverno so proud!

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.
