We love our donor community! It’s come to our attention that a few people received mismatched Christmas cards from AYA. Our trusted vendors made a mistake and we apologize for that! Your partnership is personal and valuable. We have worked with the vendors to ensure this will not happen again. We hope your holidays are filled with peace and joy!

Mr. Jones, MS Social Studies teacher, exemplifies excellence in teaching, being a Christ-like example, selfless service to the AYA community, diligence, integrity, humility and commitment to the AYA mission. Way to go Mr. Jones!
