This afternoon, over 100 students arrived at the Academy in Alabama.  Weather being what weather is in the south, let’s just say it was a WARM day, ok?  Fortunately the temperatures are supposed to go down into the mid – 80’s for the rest of the week.

At this location, Mr. Parks is joined by staff members Parker Denson, Matt Ford, Evan Doyle and Janay Stargell.  Our IMPACT TEAM members is Molly Miller.  Internet is sketchy at best at this location so I (sarv) will be posting for the staff, obtaining information via evening telephone conversations.  Have to keep everyone up to date!

The news of Day 1 is the winner of the first march off:

  • Brandon Plymel, Colquitt County High School (Moultrie, GA)

Congratulations Brandon!
