On Saturday, Sept. 28, Battle Ground Academy will induct new members into its Alumni, Sports and Faculty Hall of Fame. In addition, the school will honor its Distinguished Young Alumna in a ceremony to be held at the Hilton Franklin Cool Springs as part of the school’s homecoming weekend festivities.
“The induction of these deserving men and women is a reminder to our students, families and alumni that BGA graduates really can do anything with their education,” BGA Head of School Will Kesler said. “Whether prepared for medicine, commerce, athletics or community service, our graduates excel in every field possible. We are delighted to welcome these BGA greats into our Hall of Fame. I know their accomplishments inspire me, and I hope that they will do the same for all of our students and graduates.”
