The Academy's new SYKES Innovation Lab, built from a generous $250,000 gift from Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated, was recently unveiled at a special dedication ceremony. SYKES has also supported the Academy's Link Scholarship Program, helping provide full four-year scholarships to qualifying 9th-grade minority girls. The company's investment in AHN fits its adaptation to a 21st century business model and in its belief in giving back to the community.
AHN President Art Raimo announced at the Link Scholarship Donor Appreciation Luncheon that SYKES Enterprises, Inc. has pledged $200,000 to the Academy's Link Scholarship Program. AHN will receive $50,000 each year for the next four years from the company. The school is extremely grateful for the support of Chuck Sykes for renewing his commitment to the program; he also pledged the same amount four years ago.
