If you’ve seen the latest Augusta Magazine, you’ll notice the cover calls its readers to the 2017 Arts Awards. There are familiar faces to the EDS community in four out of the six categories. We encourage you to read the full article starting on page 41 of the magazine, so you can read what the Greater Augusta Arts Council has to say about these wonderful contributors.
First off, you’ll see first grade teacher Kate Grogan and her husband, Kevin, with former EDS grandparent William S. Morris III, pictured as representatives of the President’s Award winner, The Morris Museum of Art. The Morris Museum is a long-time supporter of our school, and indicatively of the Augusta community. Our students take yearly field trips to this museum, and many of our parents are supportive patrons.
Next you’ll see a not so familiar face, as Trey Maxwell is a behind the scenes man who runs Tracer Audio, who serves as technical director for our fifth grade musical. He was honored with the Arts Professional Award.
Tommy Dozier is a current EDS parent and new to the Board of Trustees this year. He and his company, Gold Mech, were awarded the Corporate Award because of their “continuous support in the arts, and provides its services to many of the non-profit organizations in Augusta.”
Sue Alexanderson is on campus more often than not, as she is typically serving as a substitute teacher. She “has been an educator for 48 years, working at EDS for 46 of those years as a second grade teacher, substitute, and tutor.” It is no surprise to us that she was honored with the Volunteer Award this year.
As you can see, EDS is all over these pages, and we are proud of our constituents in their support in the arts as well as the community as a whole. Our people are doing marvelous things – congratulations to all!
