  • Rebecca K. McKee 2010


    Rebecca writes "I was flattered recently to be a guest on the WFAE/NPR station program called Charlotte Talks. I will admit I was very nervous, but I am sure the senior demo, chapel talk, and oral presentations at AS gave me the best foundation possible for opportunities like this that I could never have imagined in high school. Here is the link if you're curious."

  • Anna Rogers 2014


    Anna had an exciting first semester participating with 14 other incoming freshman in Elon's Gap semester program which focuses on leadership, service learning, and international study. It included a 26-day NOLS backpack trip followed by service learning experience in several locations across the United States. She built bunk beds for children on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, helped harvest an organic urban farm in St. Louis, and staffed a food bank in Washington DC while assisting the homeless and providing for their basic needs. The last stop in the program was her stay in Costa Rica where she lived with a host family in San Jose, studying Spanish and History. On the weekends she traveled around Costa Rica enjoying the sights. She found the program was a great experience to start her college career.

  • John Volquez 2013


    John is featured in an Upworthy article entitled "10 Pictures You May Need To Show Your Kids. But I Really Hope You Don't Have To." He is the last student pictured. His quote is: “To my unborn son, the world and everything in it is yours. You gotta go get it REGARDLESS." From Upworthy: The students of Yale University's Black Men's Union struggled to find the words to say to the parents of Mike Brown, the 18-year-old who was gunned down in Ferguson, Missouri, by Officer Darren Wilson (who was not indicted). Instead, they chose to ask themselves what they would say to their unborn sons about living in a world — and a country — that kills black men with impunity. Here are their touching, somber, and somehow still hopeful answers.
