Principal, Grant Kirkpatrick, has been welcomed as the newest member of The HeArt Project's Board of Directors. The HeArt Project is a Los Angeles-based organization whose mission is to combat the epidemic high school dropout crisis with a long-term, sequential arts program offering a pursuable life path that inspires students to stay in school, evolve as unique individuals and flourish as creative adults. When asked about the appointment, Grant had this to say:

KAA has been working with and supporting The Heart Project in Los Angeles for more than 10 years. I am honored to have been asked to join the Board of Directors as I share the deep-rooted desire to offer arts programs and education to Southern California youth who are not typically exposed to opportunities in these fields. I am excited to contribute my energy and creative directives on a higher level with The HeArt Project so that we can dial-up the effectiveness of “inspiring students to stay in school, evolve as unique individuals, and flourish as creative adults”.
