School-wide Hawaiian Dress Day - Wednesday, April 8
Everyone is invited to join us for a school-wide tropical theme day next Wednesday, April 8! Pretend you're in the islands with tropical-themed hats, shirts, accessories you have on hand or get creative and make your own. Join our Spartan luau and be sure to share your photos! Email Kelley Cuneo at email@example.com or tag Athens Academy or #ACADonline on social media. Go Spartans!
We understand this isn't easy, but we need to be vigilant and take care of ourselves and one another during these difficult times. Please talk with your friends or neighbors about what will happen if you or several members of your family end up with COVID-19. Where will you quarantine, who will get and prepare food, and who will manage the household are just some of the things to consider. If you find yourself in desperate need of help, you may send an email and we will do our best to help. Thank you.
Special thanks to Athens Academy faculty members Tyler Dale, Amy Daughtry, Michael Finnerty, Shawn Harding, Jacqueline Land, Jenny Richardson, Lorraine Thompson, and Angie Wiggans with help from Mike Callinan for this amazing and inspiring video!
Congratulations to senior Kurt Knisely, who recently received All-American Athlete awards from both the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and the National High School Strength Coaches Association (NHSSCA).
Coach Bryan Pulliam is proud of Kurt’s hard work. “Kurt demonstrates the gold standard for Athens Academy’s Strength and Conditioning program. His dedication to consistent training, servant leadership, drive and competitive nature contribute to his success on and off the field. As one of the strongest pound-for-pound athletes to come through our program, Kurt’s athletic ability is extremely impressive, but it’s his attitude, character and effort that have enhanced his talent and allowed him to develop into the well-respected student athlete he is today.” Coach Pulliam continues, “Our program’s goal is to maximize each student’s genetic potential; Kurt has made our job easy in this endeavor, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to coach this Spartan. Kurt will continue his football career at the University of Georgia.”
Kurt will attend the University of Georgia this fall, where he has preferred walk-on status with the football program.
