President's Blog: A Season of Joy, Hope, & Peace

My wife and I were blessed over the years to have our two children, Houston and Sydney, attend school during their elementary and middle school years with Stephanie at St. Alphonsus and with me when they arrived at AMHS. Spending mornings and afternoons together in the car each day allowed us time to check in, catch up on our busy schedules, and somehow agree on what to listen to on the radio. Once they were able to drive—they were very anxious to have this freedom—my morning and afternoon commute was often just me and the radio.
