When then-high school student Nina Foushee traveled to Alexandria, Egypt in summer 2010 for a language exchange, she harbored many of the same misconceptions about the Arab world as her fellow Americans, she said. Six weeks later, the stereotypes about religious extremism, oppressed women and dangerous streets had been largely wiped away. “I felt incredibly safe and welcomed my entire time in Egypt,” said Foushee, now an 18-year-old freshman at Stanford University. Foushee was one of two speakers featured Thursday as La Cañada High School celebrated its second annual Diversity Week, designed to ignite a conversation among the student body among the importance of embracing peoples' difference.

It was just the sound of a few hundred girls getting reacquainted for the first time since school was dismissed for the summer. "When the girls come there will be a lot more activity and noise here with all the enthusiasm of girls seeing their friends for the first time in a few months," said Margaret Kean, the school's chief development officer. Sacred Heart started the 2010-11 school year on Monday with a student body that is marginally larger than last year's, with approximately 400 students, including a freshman class of more than 100 girls.

Each student was selected because of their character, being helpful, going beyond what is expected or a random act of kindness they displayed, such as going out of their way to help a new student.
