The Heritage School of Kabala

I blogged previously about some of the great stuff that Heritage High School, our sister high school – and rival – is doing. For the last three years Heritage has held MAD Week (Make A Difference), and raised money to help children in Sierra Leone. (Arapahoe, my high school, does similar things with both the Make A Wish foundation and Toys for Tots.)

Well, this week something even more special is happening – they are opening a school in Sierra Leone, the Heritage School of Kabala. They’ve raised almost $60,000 in the last three years and a delegation from Heritage High School is presently in Sierra Leone to celebrate the grand opening of the school and to strengthen the connection between these two schools.

You can read more about MAD week, read about the trip itself, check out some of the blog posts, or join in the live blog from Sierra Leone and Littleton, Colorado this Thursday, November 12th, from 8:00 to 10:00 am MST (UTC/GMT -7). (The live blog is dependent on the connectivity in Sierra Leone, as electricity – much less Internet connectivity – is not always reliable.)

Way to go Heritage Eagles, you make all of us proud.


  1. Thanks for the kind words, Karl. The Heritage School of Kabala is an amazing project. It's been great to see our students reach out in this way and to see their global understanding and generosity grow.

  2. The live blog that was done today was so amazing. I'm glad Karl could be there representing AHS. I hear that we are now going to do another live blog tomorrow, November 13, at 1:00pm mountain time. If you can visit the live blog then, I encourage you to. It was exciting to talk live to the people there in Sierra Leone Africa where they are 7 hours ahead of us.
