WSA Head of School Barrie Hillman will be sharing guidance and advice on what steps should be taken for the college search, the process for applications, how and when to visit schools, what questions to ask schools, how to navigate the financial aid process and also how to make the decision of where to apply and where to enroll.  Students are encouraged to attend because you are the ones who will be leading this process!

A young man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts.

Five ways you can support the gems of West Sound Academy:

 

Live Auction

The Live Auction traditionally offers a select number of items for bid that are creative and often one-of-a-kind.  In the past these have included artwork, travel, entertainment, lodging, restaurants, electronics and outdoor adventures.  Lisa Gregg is the Chair of the Live Auction and can be reached at liveauction@westsoundacademy.org should you or someone you know have an idea for a donation.

Online and Silent Auction

New this fall is WSA's exciting teaser to the big night - the Online Auction!  Featuring wonderful gift items, artwork, services, gift certificates and just-in-time holiday shopping opportunities the online auction is an exciting way for more people to get involved.  Select specialty items will be held in reserve for the Silent Auction and will be available only on the night of the event.  Allyson Metters is the Chair of the Silent Auction.  You can contact her to request information or to make a donation at silentauction@westsoundacademy.org.

Volunteer

 Volunteerism is also a wonderful way to support the event.  Jennifer Dennis is our Event Chair, and she can help determine how your energy can best support the fun and festivities!  

Jennifer can be reached at auction@westsoundacademy.org.

Business Partnerships

 Businesses sponsor our auction, gaining exposure among guests who appreciate good food, travel, and art.  WSA will promote sponsoring businesses by providing a prominent display of their donations as well as recognition on the night of the auction and in advance publicity.  We will encourage members of our community to shop locally and support those who support the greater community.  For more information please contact Elizabeth Butler at ebutler@westsoundacademy.org.
