Alumni Update: Ora Raymond

Ora Raymond (Heilicher '12) volunteered for Magen David Adom in Jerusalem in the summer of 2017. She passed her EMT test (60 hour first responder first aid training) and Hebrew Medical vocabulary test to be able to serve on an ambulance with Hebrew speakers.

This fall, Ora is returning to Lawrence University in Appleton, WI as a sophomore. She is in the National Honors Society and on the Dean's List. She will be the Vice President of Hillel Student Association, captain of her La Crosse team, and a Sunday School teacher at the local synagogue.

Way to go, Ora!

Heilicher faculty and administrators pose together at ISACS Conference

On Friday, November 4, 2022, the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) held its annual conference at the St. Paul RiverCentre. Heilicher teachers and administrators attended this full day of professional development along with 700 other independent school educators from Minnesota and the Midwest. This was the first time since 2019 that this learning event was in person, and I found the conference to be invigorating and thought provoking.
