SA Recognizes 2018 Distinguished Alumni

October 03, 2018
By Jeremy Nicholas

Dear SA Family,

Starkville Academy has a rich tradition of producing outstanding student leaders, and it gives me great pleasure to announce today our second-ever class of distinguished alumni award winners.  The 2018 Class of Distinguished Alumni include Johnny Buckner (Class of ’75), Kevin Rogers (’94), Neely Tucker (’82), and Andrew Weaver (’85).  These four individuals will take part in various activities at school on Friday, culminating in a recognition ceremony before the football game Friday night.  Be on the lookout for more information celebrating the accomplishments of these former Volunteers, and make plans to arrive early at the game to help welcome them back to SA.
