An Evening with Henry Winkler was a success!

On June 16, 2016, we hosted our second annual gala at Park Academy with special guest, Henry Winkler. Mr. Winkler shared with us his own struggles with dyslexia, and how he has grown from them. The sold out event hosted nearly 300 people, and raised $389,000 for the Park Academy Scholarship Fund, which ensures all students have an equal opportunity to receive the education they need in order to be successful.


This night was monumental, and we could not have done it without the generosity of our community.

Thank you for your support!

In addition, $200,000 for the Dr. Paula Kinney Scholarship Fund was raised through dear friends of Dr. Kinney, and a matching gift from Georgia Financial, in honor of Dr. Paula Kinney and her years of service to Park Academy. This fund will provide tuition relief for one student annually who would not otherwise be able to attend Park Academy. Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness in honoring Dr. Kinney through this initiative! Her passion for ensuring equity for all students will continue through this fund.
