Congratulations Lauren

Congratulations to Lauren Ford for her selection to the Swim Across America Junior Advisory Board. Lauren will be leading the Druid Hills community to Make Waves Against Cancer at next September’s Open Water Swim.

Twenty students from ten private and public high schools were nominated by their swim coaches and will represent their high schools as ambassadors of Swim Across, America which has raised over $60 million dollars for Cancer Research through swim-related events from Coast to Coast.

Lauren Ford is flanked by Junior Board Advisors (l to r) Dr. Julie Granger and 3X Olympic Gold Medalist Amanda Weir.

Congratulations Keaghan and Airian

Congratulations to Keaghan Peppers and Airian Riddick for placing 5th in the state in their respective disciplines (200m and discus). Airian set a school record at last week's State Championships in Albany.

Good luck to the boys track team, competing this week in their State Championships in Jefferson, GA.
