Gathered in front of the fireplace, speakers emphasized the transformative power of scholarships and the high priority given to education by the Alexandria community. Scholarship recipient and T.C. graduate Emily Haitsuka explained, “It meant so much to me knowing the community was behind me and was supporting my goals.” According to Cindy Anderson, SFA Board Chair and T.C. alumna, “A scholarship changed my life. I support the Scholarship Fund, so others have similar opportunities.” In addition to the program, guests enjoyed seasonal mini-soups and canapés generously provided by Mindy’s Catering of Georgetown, co-owned by ACPS parent Erin White.
