2015 Advocacy Day and Bike Tour in Santa Fe

ACE Leadership High School students traveled to Santa Fe for the 2015 Advocacy Day. Students toured the State capital Building, met with Senators and participated in a bike tour of the city. This was all in conjunction with the American Society of Landscape Architects and the New Mexico “Complete Streets” Initiative. The initiative pushes for better integrated street design taking pedestrian/cyclist accommodations and considerations into account. ACE represented well and even met with Senator Cisco McSorely to discuss the initiative.

ISAE/Albuquerque Museum Arts Collaboration

As part of an international arts festival, ACE students worked with two artists from Europe, staff at the Albuquerque Museum, and fine art students from UNM to explore topics of place, community, society, the built environment and technology over a two week period.  This work culminated in an installation created for the ISAE arts festival and hung in the Albuquerque Museum.

Sawmill Neighborhood Home Improvements

Sawmill Neighborhood Home Improvements

ACE students have tackled a series of home improvement projects for several of our Sawmill neighbors. Projects have included installing a yard fence, constructing a wheel chair ramp, and interior and exterior painting.  Such work allows students to manage projects, create budgets, work with clients, and build relationships with our immediate neighbors.
