2013 Commencement Address
At the end of May, Atlanta Youth Academy welcomed Mr. Richard Lindeman to deliver the commencement address at our 8th grade graduation ceremony. A three-sport college athlete
and graduate of Westminster Schools and Rhodes College, Lindeman was diagnosed in 1988 with multiple sclerosis. He inspired all in attendance with his words about God’s sovereignty
and following His purpose for our lives even in the midst of adversity.
AYA at Perfect Image
As part of a unit studying printmaking, AYA art teacher Miss Millie Turner took a group of 6th graders for a field trip to Perfect Image, an Atlanta-area commercial printing company
owned by AYA supporter, Mr. Ira Jackson. Mr. Jackson treated the students to an inside look at printing in the “real world.” On the way back to school, the students were able
to visit The Walker School as part of an overall plan to expose AYA students to many of the educational options available to them upon graduation from AYA.
