EAA always love seeing alumni back on campus. Perhaps one of the most exciting things is seeing alumni on campus giving back to a program that they benefited from during their years at EAA.

EAA currently has three alumni who have taken on varsity head coaching roles at EAA. Emmanuel Ayala (02'), Tae Ho Kim (11'), and Lani Shetler (14').

Emmanuel Ayala graduated in EAA's Class of 2002. He completed his AS Degree in Medical Radiography in 2010, and a BS in Healthcare Administration in 2016. "Emman" and his wife Maria are proud parents of Jonathan(5) and Benjamin(3). Coach Ayala, as the kids call him, is currently the head coach of the Boys Varsity Flagball team.

Tae Ho Kim is a graduate of the Class of 2011. He recently completed an Associate Degree in Nursing in 2018 at Southern Adventist University. Tae Ho works as a Psychiatric Nurse (RN) for the County of San Diego. Tae Ho is in his his first year as the head coach of the Boys Varsity Basketball team at EAA.

Lani Shetler, Class of 2014, earned her BA degree in History Political Science from La Sierra University in 2019. She is currently working on her Masters in Elementary Education from GCU with plans to graduate in 2021. Lani works as a nanny for several families to help gain experience working with children. Lani is the daughter of Darena Shetler (EAA's 8th Grade teacher) and Jon Shetler. Her brother Jon E. graduate from EAA in 2017, and her younger sister Kiana will graduate in the class of 2020. Lani has been Co-coaching both the Girls and Boys Varsity Volleyball teams for the past two seasons.

EAA is so proud and grateful to these dedicated alumni. There is no bigger reward than seeing former students give back to their school. Once a Hawk, always a Hawk!
