One hundred and eleven students at Athens High School and Athens Middle School have made all A’s up through this point in the nearly completed school year. That’s a major accomplishment and one that members of the AMS PTO and Athens Academic Renaissance Organization (the parent group that serves the high school) wanted to recognize in a big way.
So AISD parent Michele Bomer, who has children at both campuses and is a member of both organizations, spearheaded the effort to recruit local sponsors and reward the students. Twenty-two local businesses and organizations committed funds to make it possible to send more than 60 high school students to Six Flags and more than 30 middle school students to a Ranger’s game last week. (Not all students who qualified attended.)
