This 115thanniversary of the Albert Academy, one of the oldest secondary schools in Sierra Leone is being celebrated at home and abroad.

Some members of one of the numerous alumni branches abroad, the Washington D.C. Albert Alumni Association, recently organized a road trip to the home of the man after whom the school was built, the Reverend Ira Albert.

The Alumni travelled by bus from Burtonsville in Maryland to Annville, Pennsylvania where they visited Rev. Albert’s church, Sherks Church. He grew up in and helped to build that church from where he went to Sierra Leone as a missionary. Unfortunately, he drowned in the Bumpe River and the Albert Academy was later named after him.

The group also visited Reverend Albert’s family and the college he attended, Lebanon Valley College, before returning to Maryland.
