Shepherd’s Hill Academy Celebrates 20 Years of Serving Teens & Families
Martin, GA — Shepherd’s Hill Academy would like to extend a personal thank you to the wonderful communities of Stephens, Franklin, Hart, Habersham Counties, and beyond for making our 20-year celebration a huge success. “From the bottom of our hearts, Thank You! It was such a humbling and encouraging day for us at SHA as we opened our doors to our partners and friends. We could not exist and serve the families that we do without your continued prayer and support.”
The leadership explained, “SHA’s 20th Anniversary is a milestone many programs within our field dream to achieve. The journey to twenty years could only have been achieved through the people God has called to serve this organization. During the weekend’s event, we were able to reunite with some of the heroes of SHA’s history. It was a blessing.”
August was a whirlwind for the team at Shepherd’s Hill Academy. As the program looks back on the 20-year celebration, it is with joy and great expectation for what is ahead. The celebration was historic for Shepherd’s Hill Academy in several ways. Beyond marking two-decades of service, the program hosted the largest event open to the public in program history, with nearly 200 people in attendance. The SHA community showed up ready for a wonderful day of fun including corn hole, jump houses/water slides, axe throwing, and of course, flag football; one of the highlights of the event was the flag football tournament between two community youth groups. Along with the community, SHA alumni traveled from all over the country to be in attendance and share in the celebration. It was truly a very special day.
Shepherd’s Hill Academy would also like to thank those who partnered together to make the event a success: “a special thank you to all of the vendors and the local Chamber of Commerce organizations for helping plan, promote, and for making the day so special for the SHA team and guests! We are also very grateful to NATSAP and all the dedicated residential schools and programs across America who have encouraged and sharpened us for the better. Thank You! “
The team at Shepherd’s Hill Academy would like to extend an invitation to those who may have missed the event (or those who were not able to tour the program) to join folks on campus for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour. Private tours can be scheduled at your convenience with their Advancement Coordinator. Please call (706) 779-5766 to schedule.
