Core Values like a brick
The first Core Value bricks were placed by the students who best represented each of the core values during the 2011-12 school year, as nominated by faculty. They were placed next to the fountain and reflection area, built in memory of former Headmaster Randy Wall, who passed away last year. Dr. Wall spearheaded the effort to make sure BA’s core values were practiced every day. Pictured, from left, is Charlie Humphries: Respect, Michael Bible: Intellect, JaneAnn Laffitte: (School) Pride, Madeline Griffith: Leadership, Quinn Fleming: Integrity.
