Atlanta’s oldest charter school will launch a student leadership and service program, made possible by a $1.1 million donation.
Atlanta Public Schools’ four-year graduation rate reached 83.1% for the class of 2021. That’s an increase from the year before, when it was 80.3%. Drew Charter School had the second highest graduation rate in Atlanta Public Schools (99%), close behind Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy.
Despite challenges stemming from the coronavirus pandemic including an absence of paying spectators, last year’s PGA TOUR Championship event at East Lake Golf Club raised a record-breaking $3.56 million for four local nonprofit organizations: East Lake Foundation; Grove Park Foundation; Purpose Built Schools Atlanta; and First Tee Metro Atlanta. Prospects are good for another record-breaking outcome for the same quartet of local beneficiaries when The TOUR Championship returns to East Lake Golf Cub Sept. 2-5.
