amazing student accommodation like this one in Portsmouth.

The data from this survey acknowledged for Mount Alvernia’s Board of Director and the Facilities Subcommittee that their building plans for the summer of 2019 were well decided.  This June, Mount Alvernia will begin renovations of the existing biology laboratory on the first floor, as well as the development of a second biology laboratory on the second floor of the main building.  I am excited that as of September our facilities will reflect the strength of Mount Alvernia’s science program.

who enroll in college. (The number of military children enrolled in college has been rising, but not by much.)

In 2013, the government gave $715 million in scholarships to about 5,300 students at four-year colleges and universities. There is also an online university for military aimed to making easier the enrollment of the veterans. And the program is funded in part by the National Guard and Reserve, according to the VA. In the past year, about 13,000 veterans have enrolled in higher education, VA records show.

The VA, which has a $30 billion budget, has an annual budget of about $11 billion, making the money available to pay for tuition and other costs, including health care, dental care and counseling.

Tomorrow, Mount Alvernia’s student body will hear from Dr. Reshma Kewalramani, MD, FASN.  Dr. Kewalramani is the Executive Vice President, Global Medicines Development and Medical Affairs, and Chief Medical Officer for Vertex Pharmaceuticals whose headquarters are here in Boston.  Dr. Kewalramani will share her career story with the students as well as introduce them to the work done at Vertex – specifically the work related to the development of treatments for Cystic Fibrosis.  This is an exciting opportunity for our students.  It’s particularly exciting for me as a school leader because it is the product of a student idea.  Emma Canning ’20 met Dr. Kewalramani at a summer program promoted by MAHS at Boston University last summer.  The program allowed for Emma to form a relationship with Dr. Kewalramani that has brought her to MAHS.  This is another affirmation of our program.  I appreciate that our students take advantage of the opportunities offered to them and when they see something valuable they bring it back to 790 Centre Street!

Pax et Bonum,
