ClearWater Academy parents, friends, community supporters, students, teachers, and faculty gathered at Camp Southern Ground for the school’s 4th Annual Charity Gala on November 3, 2018. Shane Perry, ClearWater Academy parent, hosted the magical evening, and Shastina Chiles provided music, while Jenna Kim Jones kept attendees in stitches with her comedy routine. Mr. Bobby Parish, a ClearWater Academy parent who often gives CWA paper goods and also works to beautify the yard, was presented with the Volunteer of the Year Award. Everyone enjoyed the delicious Mexican buffet served up by the amazing Southern Ground Chef Collins. Both alumni and current parents spoke about how ClearWater Academy had been a blessing from God for their children and families. Attendees rose to their feet, wowed by the talents of students who sang and danced in front of the large audience. At the end of a successful silent auction, Mr. Perry asked everyone to open their hearts, think about the need that ClearWater Academy is filling in our community and try to reach an additional cash donation goal of $10,000. To everyone’s joy, that goal was exceeded by thousands of dollars.
