Congratulations ARIA

Photo taken 2008 Piazza della Signoria, Firenze

Aria called this morning to let us know she's been offered the job in Florence, Italy. We are thrilled for her as this is a great opportunity she will have to work with American Students studying abroad.

We are celebrating here and toasting you!
I thought you'd be interested in these "Rules for Students" poster by Sister Mary Corita.

for the rest of your life."
