It is with deep regret and a heavy heart that we confirm a recent loss to our Futures Academy community. On Saturday, April 27, we lost Sarah Wong, 19, a freshman at Seattle Pacific University, when a construction tower crane being dismantled atop Google’s new Seattle campus collapsed onto one of Seattle’s busiest thoroughfares. Sarah attended our Futures Academy, Pasadena campus for three years and graduated in 2018. 

Ayesha Bangash, Head of Educational Programs and Services at Futures, Pasadena shared the following, “We are deeply saddened and our campus is heavily mourning the loss of our graduate, Sarah Wong. Sarah was the heart and soul of our student body and a true campus leader serving as our student body president and commencement speaker. She gave to our school community endlessly and selflessly. Sarah remains embedded in our hearts forever. Our prayers are with Sarah's family and friends during this excruciatingly painful time.”

A grief counselor is currently supporting our school community. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Sarah's family and friends during this difficult time.
