It is our aim that these distinctive qualities will take root in our current students and continue to flourish after graduating from Westminster Academy. This week, we would like to share how sixth-grader, Sebastian Garcia-Alcala, is well on his way to fulfilling that portrait. Five years ago, Sebastian was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. He quickly joined the fight to find a cure with JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), the leading global organization funding Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) research. Because of his active response, JDRF selected him as a...
