Gaines Visits Gaines

Gaines Academy students were so excited to welcome their school’s namesake, Dr. Samuel S. Gaines, on Wednesday morning. Dr. Gaines was greeted by a tunnel of enthusiastic elementary students while being serenade by the SGA spirit band and choir. As the guest for the SLPS’ monthly Speakers Bureau program, Dr. Gaines both inspired and entertained SGA’s middle school students with his message of encouragement.



That’s The Way, SGA!
