Guests were greeted by jazz duo Michel Domingue and Bong Peñera and later a special treat of student musicians who played a few songs to start the evening off. The theme this year was “we heART altus,” a showcase and silent auction of student artwork. Students collaborated to create many beautiful art pieces.
The evening program began with a video about Altus Academy and the reason why John Heybach, President, and Felipe Mejia, Principal, formed the academy. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. The energy and excitement built up a vast amount of support; and enthusiasm emerged from the crowd.
The evening concluded with a Fund-A-Need campaign, which raised two full scholarships in 5 minutes, and matched for a total of 4 scholarships. Many new friends of Altus were raised and look forward to visiting Altus Academy in the near future.
