Galloway School Convocation Service

Galloway students celebrate sense of community as they prepare to embark on a yearlong service partnership with Heifer International.

Student speakers at 's fifth annual opening convocation Thursday morning shared their thoughts on community.

The convocation at the school's campus included a student procession with bagpipe music and an official welcome from Head of School Dr. Beth Farokhi. The ceremony kicked off Galloway's yearlong celebration of one of the school's founding pillars: community.

Student speakers were fourth-grader Lily Siegel, daughter of Lori and Jon of Buckhead; eighth-grader Aaron Earl, son of Sari and Olen of Buckhead; and 11th-grader Taylor Robinson, daughter of Dalise and Paul of Decatur.

Galloway announced that the school's yearlong service project will be with Heifer International, a global organization that works with communities to end hunger and poverty.
