Kali Arnold (15 year student)
Congratulations to Dr. Arnold, Kali is an orthopedic surgeon at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA! Kali graduated from the private school Shady Side Academy and went to the prestigious Vassar… she continued to dance through college, and m-cats and rotations. She was always there to cheer on our other alumni in their first professional jobs and take class on a weekly basis. This little girl told me (at about age 12) she didn’t want to sit by their bedside and chat she just wanted to slice them open, fix the problem and send them on their way FYI – for all you scholars… she never had to leave early to study for Mid Terms!

Kisha Hortman (14 year student)
Kisha is the Chief Administrator of Hospital in Washington, DC. She graduated from Penn Hills High School with all the rest and attended the auspicious American University in Washington, DC. Kisha had the opportunity to continue her dancing and performed at the Kennedy Center. She was always part of the applause any time a fellow ALDC member toured through the capital in their show! Now, a woman in power… she stands straight, walks turned out and continues to love to dance!
