Our Grand Breakfast – Alive with the Spirit!!

On Monday, November 11th, we held our “Grand Breakfast.”  The goal of the Breakfast was to raise funds to move the administrative offices to the front of the campus for the increased safety of our students.  There were over 350 people in attendance, and the gym was Alive with the Spirit!

The Keynote Speaker of the day was Mr. Jeff Hornacek, Head Coach of the Phoenix Suns, and our Alumna Speaker was Mr. Sal Guardiola, ’06, and currently a Senior at University of New Mexico.  Both speakers, along with our talented Student Ambassadors and Student Council members made the morning an impressive one.
