On March 24th, our agency was busy managing all of three client events/activities - it was truly an exciting day that ended on a sweet note with the celebration of Premier Academy's 40th Anniversary Celebration Gala.
The event took place in the heart of downtown Atlanta at the Loudermilk Center. A classy affair, Executive Director, Cindra Taylor looked radiant anticipating addressing the well-dressed crowd of esteemed professionals in early childhood education that came out - not only to receive awards for their tireless dedication providing exceptional early childhood education - but to celebrate Premier Academy for being such a great example of how exceptional an early childhood education is the foundation upon which future educational successes is dependent upon.

Former pre-schoolers turned doctors, CEO's and accomplished men and women returned to say "Thanks" to Premier Academy for a great formative education. And Ken Ford surprised the crowd with his appearance to receive his award while we were viewing his video acceptance speech. That was such a moment - a proud moment for me personally! It was culminated by a dynamic performance by Ken Ford Foundation 14 year-old virtuoso, DeMarkus Davis who wow'd the crowd with his rendition of "King of Strings" Ken Ford classics off his latest CD, State of Mind.
