ROSWELL, Ga. – The school band welcomed students, staff, leadership and dignitaries to High Meadows School by playing "Don't Stop Believing" on a chilly Monday morning, Feb. 10. Head of School Jay Underwood welcomed everyone and congratulated those involved with the completion of two outstanding additions to the diverse High Meadows campus: a gazebo and Memaw's Garden Cabana. It took many hands to come together for these individual dreams.
"Memaw" Florence Crawford was the mother of Bill Crawford, founder of HMS. She not only ran the front office and taught art, but also lived on the campus and enjoyed puttering around. Her likeness (displayed on the tile) is most honored with this special place to come sit and garden. The gazebo will provide a great place for students and residents to study, brainstorm or just enjoy a picnic.
The High Meadows community celebrates and perpetuates each individual's quest for knowledge and skill, sense of wonder and connection to the natural environment. For more information about High Meadows School, www.HighMeadows.org.
