The evening included lively toasts to all our program locations along with stories of CCSA early years. Jeffrey Williams regaled us with a rendition of a famous Scottish poet.

We were also reminded of the impacts CCSA has had on many people over the years. Heather Schieman, alumna and former RA, came clean on how she worked her way on to multiple CCSA programs (as an RA), then found her calling in international education.

Friendships – new and old – we reinforced, built on our common goal of providing students unique learning opportunities.

And we showcased on our most recent students, who also is a Storyteller Scholar.

We wrapped the evening with cake and a final toast to CCSA.
