Special Thanks

As you can see, many volunteers helped us create a celebratory year because of their love for Athenian. We especially want to thank Dyke Brown's family for their enduring dedication to Athenian, the Board of Trustees for their vision, and most importantly, the students of yesterday, today, and tomorrow, for they will always be the life of the School.
