16 Feb A Word From Mr. Satterly—February 16, 2017
Dear WA Community,
“…And down the stretch they come…”
The Kentucky Derby has been dubbed the “fastest two minutes in sports.” Seeing powerful and majestic thoroughbreds thundering toward the finish line is an exhilarating experience. While I do not think this year’s auction will include actual horses, I do hope that it will include some unbridled excitement and pageantry.
The theme to one side, there are three primary goals for the evening—celebration, recognition, and fundraising. As we gather together, we will celebrate community and enjoy what God is doing in our midst. Secondly, we will recognize and honor Dr. Ken Wackes, our beloved former Headmaster of 32 years. Regarding the financial part of the evening, we will be revealing renderings for renovations to the Wackes Media Center that will serve as a model for how we envision our campus to look in the coming years.
Joel T. Satterly
