Greenbrier Academy is excited to announce that it is celebrating 10 years of changing lives.
It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since GBA first opened its doors! Last weekend, Greenbrier Academy students, alumni, parents and staff reunited on campus to celebrate 10 years of healing.
Participants spent the weekend reconnecting and meeting new faces. We were thrilled to see alumni from as far back as 2008.
A particularly special highlight of our celebration occurred as students, current and past, joined together in the GBA drumming yurt. By the nature of our student-led drumming, drum rhythms tend to change and develop over the years as new students bring their own unique influences to the music. Despite the differences, our current students and our alumni were able to align and play a number of the rhythms together. It was truly a remarkable performance.
We closed out our weekend celebration with a return to the GBA Village. For many students, the Village experience proves to be the most powerful component at Greenbrier. Together, students, alumni, staff, and parents hiked the half-mile trail up the mountainside to Village. In the serene, wooded setting, stories and intentions were shared by all.
As we reflect on the past 10 years, we feel unbelievably proud of the accomplishments of our alumni. As we look forward to our next 10 years, we are incredibly thankful for our current families and our dedicated staff.
While we celebrate this milestone, we can't help feeling blessed to have crossed paths with so many incredible individuals. Greenbrier Academy has always been and will always be committed to changing lives and building meaningful relationships. To our alumni, families, students and staff, thank YOU for making this achievement possible.
