On Wednesday, April 5, Shady Side Academy alumnus Jose Amayo '94 was the guest speaker during an all-school assembly at the Middle School. Amayo spoke to the students about service, and specifically about an international service project he and his daughter, Lydija, recently completed called "The Beautiful Gift." Through a local donation drive, they collected 370 pounds of soccer equipment, which the Amayo family donated and personally delivered to two schools in Cajamarca, Peru.
Amayo currently works as a Technical Program Manager in Pittsburgh.
Thank you for visiting, Mr. Amayo!
