AE Volunteer of the Year- Amy Contreras

Amy Contreras is in 7th grade but you would never know it. She volunteers in the garden there days a week    while ensuring she completes her studies. She always goes above and beyond while volunteering in the garden. We love having Amy as an AE volunteer.


Congratulations to AE 2016 Member of the Year, Rita Ewaz!

AE is proud to announce Rita Ewaz as member of the year. Rita Ewaz has been attending AE for over seven years as a student and also works in Big AE and Little AE as a tutor, plus AE summer programming. Rita has consistently demonstrated her leadership skills during her time as a student in AE and an employee by helping her fellow students understand complex work easily. She is highly regarded by her peers and coworkers for her work ethic and compassion. She maintains nearly a 4.0 GPA while working AE and Rhythmic. She also participated in multiple sports at CYC growing up.  You’ll be hard pressed to find a Head Coach or Program Director that doesn’t know Rita and what a fine young woman she is. Her work ethic and positive attitude are contagious and we look forward to seeing her continue to grow in the couple of years she has left before college.
