St. Augustine students attend values institute


st.augustinestudents-webSix students represented St. Augustine Prep, Richland, at the first Student Augustinian Values Institute (SAVI) held at St. Rita’s High School in Chicago from April 15-18. Attending were juniors Adam Schroeder and Joseph Pantelone; sophomores Daniel Falasca and William McMenamin; and freshmen Dakeil Shorts and Frank Zeigler. Brooke Coyle, mathematics teacher, and Father Ron Hamaday, O.S.A., Prior Provincial for the St. Augustine Prep Augustinian Community, accompanied the students. The Student Augustinian Values Institute (SAVI) is an outgrowth of seven Augustinian Values Institutes (AVI) held at various Augustinian high schools in North America since 2004. The AVI is a weekend experience that brings together faculty, staff, administrators and board members from Augustinian schools throughout the world to affirm Augustinian core values, to share best practices in carrying the Augustinian mission, and to create networks of cooperation among the schools. Since service to others is so much a part of Augustinian education, the group participated in a common project for the poor in Chicago.
