Remembering Our Founder

When I joined IEA this past summer, one of the first things I wanted to do as the new Executive Director was to meet the school's founder. I spent many hours with Sister Helen learning about the school's beginnings and the mission she held dear over the last fifty years. She shared her hopes, I shared ideas and together we envisioned IEA's future. The commitment to the vision is unwavering - a future where students reach their goals in a nurturing environment. Sister Helen's dreams will always be felt in the halls of IEA. I, like so many others, am incredibly grateful to have had the chance to know such an incredible woman.

Thank you Sister Helen, you will truly be missed.
