Congratulations to Gage Lewis, second grader at Mattie Lively Elementary, and one of the 2017 recipients of the Averitt Center for the Arts Youth Arts Scholarship awards!  Proceeds raised by the Willingway Alumni/Staff community at this year's Homecoming Slop Bucket Challenge help send outstanding Bulloch County schoolchildren as selected by their teachers to Averitt classes and camps. Gage is pictured at the school's awards ceremony on May 11 with teacher Paula Devlin and WW inpatient counselor Kinder Cannon, who presented him with the award.

The Averitt is a longtime community partner of ours. Many of our clients and alumni have volunteered for, been employed by, and performed there over the years and this is Willingway's fourth year supporting the Youth Arts Scholarship awards. We hope the winners have a great summer participating in the Averitt's excellent program offerings!
