“On behalf of the executive
committee of the Olde Town
Neighborhood Association, we
wanted to express our
support and appreciation for
what Heritage Academy has
done and is doing in our
neighborhood. Heritage is an
asset to the neighborhood that
benets its students, the
surrounding community, and
Augusta as a whole. Many of
our neighborhood’s children and
children from adjacent
neighborhoods attend Heritage,
and are receiving amazing
educations. Beyond the
opportunity Heritage provided
to many who wouldn’t have
had it otherwise, over the years
Heritage has represented a
beachhead for those of us who
want to see Augusta’s
downtown be all it can be. It’s a
picture of what’s possible here.
Historically beautiful buildings
can be restored and families
can ourish in this beautifully

very year 40-50 people from all over the
Augusta community give freely of their time
and talents, and selﬂessly serve our Heritage
Some volunteers come to us wide open and
willing to be plugged in anywhere. Others come
to us with a speciﬁc idea. We have someone
who has given every Thursday afternoon to be
our handyman. We have a group of men who
are in a Bible study and asked if they could have
lunch with and mentor a group of boys once a
month. We have a grandma who comes once
a week and sharpens pencils. Our faithful group
makes it possible for our children to have a
weekly library experience and check out books.
And we have many others who serve in our
classrooms reading, helping and assisting our
teachers and children.
As we celebrate the theme of gratitude this year,
Heritage Academy is thankful to the Lord for
these servants who freely offer themselves to us.

Academy, contact Beth Westergreen at
