Athens Academy is pleased to announce that seniors Kevin Yin and Anna Ford Pittard have been named valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively, for the Class of 2017. This fall Kevin will attend Georgia Tech, and Anna Ford will attend Furman University.
Athens Academy's graduation exercises will be held this Sunday, May 21, at 4:00 p.m. at the Classic Center. Congratulations to all 77 of the members of the Class of 2017!
Congratulations to senior Kevin Yin, who has been named STAR Student for Athens Academy. He and STAR Teacher Richard Patterson were honored at a breakfast yesterday morning hosted by High Shoals Health and Rehabilitation and the Oconee County Chamber of Commerce. Way to go, Spartans!
It's hard to believe it's already time to start planning for summer 2017, but Summer at Athens Academy is offering dozens of great camps from six weeks of traditional day camp and sports of all kinds to camps like coding, CAD, and even sewing! Click here for more information and to visit our new-and-improved registration site--and check back often, as new camps will be added over the coming weeks. We hope you'll spend Summer at Athens Academy!
Richard Patterson's lab in the Science & Art Building has been named in his honor by alumni parents Brenda and Ham Magill and their daughters Carroll Magill '90 and Cathleen Magill Obray '92. Dr. and Mrs. Magill presented Mr. Patterson and his wife Georgia with the plaque during his first period class this morning, thanking him for his excellence in teaching and coaching over the years.
Mr. Patterson will retire at the end of the 2016-17 school year after 40 years at Athens Academy. He will be missed by the students, alumni, families, faculty, and staff whose lives he has touched. Thankfully, Mr. Patterson will continue to assist with coaching Track & Field (and hopefully he will continue to share his beautiful photos as well!). Congratulations and thank you, Mr. Patterson!
