Class of 2016 Memory Books

September 1, 2016

It was great to see so many of the members of the Class of 2016 return recently for their Memory Book Party. Classmates caught up, swapped high school stories and enjoyed looking through their new Memory Books. They were welcomed by Charla Dziedzic, Alumni President, and learned more about being members of the Academy’s Alumni Association. It was a fun afternoon with friends!
Special thanks to Ms. Alexander, Mrs. Booher, Mrs. Coffman, Mrs. Dee and Mrs. Thomas for putting together a wonderful keepsake for the Class of 2016!
