The Class of 2010 was the first graduating class at IPA. All 45 members of that first class went off to colleges and universities across the nation. In this varied group of seniors were, among others, a recipient of a National Spanish Honor Society grant to travel to South America on a study tour, a young man selected as one of two representatives from Hawaii in the Senate Youth Program, and a football wide-receiver named to the All-State Football Team.
Members of the Class of 2011 and 2012 have similarly distinguished themselves, adding colleges in Scotland, England and Japan and the US Air Force Academy to the national list of schools they’ve chosen to attend. Their ranks have included leaders in community service projects (with such lasting effects as establishing Blood Bank appearances on campus), members of a league-winning basketball team and other individual sports standouts, and accomplished artists and musicians.
Each winter recent alumni return to campus to share their college experience with current upper division students. That experience is testimony to the solid preparation IPA has provided, both in terms of academic foundations and knowledge and the personal skills and confidence to embrace the challenges of higher level work.
We look forward to keeping in touch with the growing number of IPA alumni. Based on their impressive record of achievements and community involvement during their time at IPA, we are confident that they will continue to find success as they pursue college and professional degrees and shape their futures.
