Happy Easter from Westminster Academy!

Gross proceeds to date are over $580,000, including $78,000 for the Faculty Lounges Renovation Heart Raise. It’s not too late to donate to the Heart Raise!

Samuel will be attending the University of Alabama’s Honors College for Computer Engineering. Congratulations, Samuel!
