Congratulations to senior Sara Mack Lowe for being named Spartan of the Week! (Week of November 29):

Spartan of the Week - Sara Mack Lowe

Sara Mack is an active member of the ACAD Drama Department. She has taken acting classes, been a strong participant in the Drama Club, and has performed in several school and community  theatre productions. Recently, as a member of the one act company of “Quilters”, Sara Mack’s acting talents were recognized by the Georgia High School Association. She was titled “Best Actress” in the Region One Act Competition and “All Star Cast” in the State One Act Competition. Sara Mack is a beloved member of the Drama Department. Her talents, sense of humor, and leadership will be sorely missed next year! Sara Mack plans to participate in the upcoming Spring production of “Clue” and is excited for what the future holds. Lorraine Thompson, One Act Play

Mae has been so much fun to teach. She is very driven and takes advice well. I’ve enjoyed seeing her grow her skills and push herself in class. She takes her time and produces great work.
