a word from the president Change has been the theme for the presidential candidates of both parties in this election year. They could have visited the PA campus for an excellent example of change for the better and to see how change can be managed effectively and with excellent results. In the 1990’s, I served on the PA Board and have spent little time on the campus since, except for going through the drop-off or pick-up line to deliver or retrieve my grandchildren. When I returned to the campus late this summer to assume my role as interim president, I was astonished by the complete physical transformation of the institution I knew as PA.

joe hatcher interim president

From two classroom buildings and a gym, PA has become a campus that feels more like a college than a school. In one summer, two separate physical plants that served different purposes became a single institution devoted to educating young people. In a remarkably short time, facilities were renovated and re-shaped to provide teachers who had long worked in cramped quarters with state-of-the art educational spaces. From a school where students from 3 to 18 had been elbow-to-elbow, PA has become a campus where Early Childhood, Lower, Middle, and Upper School students each have their own space—and yet the four entities comfortably share common spaces and interact productively. Seniors easily move to the Early Childhood classrooms to serve as senior brothers and sisters to the smaller children, but each age has wonderful classrooms designed for their particular needs—all on one campus. PA has made great strides in a very short period of time. For the first time in many years, the school has facilities that are worthy of the quality of the faculty and the academic program. There is still work to be done, but PA has made a quantum leap. You who are recognized in this annual report for your contributions of time, your work with our students, and your financial support have made these gains possible. The students of PA and all of us who work here on campus with them are grateful to you for your generosity. Yes, there is still work to be done, and we will be calling on you for additional help. We must continue to improve our programs, we must continue to grow the annual fund, and we must provide for additional capital needs. But much has been accomplished, and you can feel great pride in the “new” PA. Sincerely,

Joe Hatcher, Interim President

a year of

change

The 2007-08 school year was one of excitement, activity, and anticipation like no other in PA history. After two years of meeting upon meeting with FBC representatives, city officials, architects, Board members,

2007-08 MILESTONES summer 2007 The Pulaski Academy Campus Master Plan was finalized.

and PA families, the school was finally ready to break ground on its campus expansion project. Construction crews, sheetrockers, and painters were welcome additions to our little campus community as the school year was coming to a close. And that’s when the magic really began.

4 | A Year of Change

fall 2007 The multi-phased Campus Master Plan was unveiled. Phase One would address campus expansion and renovation to be implemented by Summer 2008. Phase Two would identify additional renovation and campus projects for the future. Architects undertook design work for classroom renovation and other Phase One renovations.


january 2008 The Groundbreaking Ceremony took place, and renovations officially began.

In the new ECS building, every day is an exciting learning adventure. Don Swanson stands in the entryway to the future administration building, Gardner Hall.

where we stand now WE’RE ALMOST THERE! With a goal of $5.6 million for Phase 1 of the campus expansion, we are proud to announce that the capital campaign has raised 85% of its goal for a total of $4.97 million to date. With under $625,000 to go, the finish line for this phase of the campaign is definitely in sight! But we still need your help to go that last mile. We are grateful to two donors who have stepped forward to inspire others to join in on the philanthropic action and see to it that we reach our goal.

$5,600,000 $5 million

$4 million

we are here! $3 million

$4.97 million

THE MILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE! To help PA reach its capital campaign goal and to encourage families to participate, an anonymous donor stepped forward last spring with a Million Dollar Challenge. This exciting challenge will match every new capital gift or pledge dollar for dollar. To date, the school has received $376,000 in new gifts toward the Million Dollar Challenge, with $624,000 of the challenge still to earn.

$2 million

$1 million

c a p i t a l co m p o n e nt g o a l

DOUBLE CHALLENGE ANNOUNCED! An anonymous donor inspired by the $1,000,000 Capital Campaign Challenge has issued a second $100,000 Challenge for the Name a Seat Campaign! Make a gift or pledge of $250, $500, or $1000, and your gift will be matched by BOTH challenges for a total impact of $750, $1500 or $3000, respectively.

With the $1,000,000 Capital Campaign Challenge and the $100,000 Name a Seat Challenge, your gifts MORE THAN EVER can make a significant difference in the lives of PA students!

8 | Where We Stand Now

NAMING OPPORTUNITIES STILL ABOUND! A wide range of naming and underwriting opportunities are available to donors who would like to help the school, leave a legacy, and help earn the $1,000,000 Challenge all at the same time! From naming a building to underwriting a classroom, every gift will be matched by the challenge. For more information on naming and underwriting opportunities, contact Jeanie Berna, Head of Advancement, at 604-1938 or via email at jeanie. berna@pulaskiacademy.org.


support for the future NAME A SEAT CAMPAIGN Interested in supporting the Capital campaign while leaving a lasting impression on the PA campus? Then consider naming a seat in honor or memory of a beloved family member, a favorite teacher or coach, your student, or soonto-be graduate.

ovation level Play a starring role in support of PA! With a gift of $1000, you will name a seat in the orchestra section of the Connor Performing Arts Center. And with the double challenge in place, your gift will have an impact of $3000!

encore level Make a statement! With a gift of $500, you will not only say, “I support PA,” but you will name a seat in the side floor section of the Performing Arts Center. And because of the double challenge, your gift will have a total impact of $1500!

applause level As a seat donor, your name - or the name of someone you choose to honor - will be engraved on a permanent brass plate on a seat in the Connor Performing Arts Center.

Show your support with a $250 donation! Your gift will earn you a named seat in the outer floor sections or the balcony. And with the double challenge in place, your gift will translate into $750 toward our school’s future!

Naming a seat is a fantastic way to mark a birthday, holiday, or special accomplishment, or it’s also the perfect way to remember or honor a student, teacher, coach, or loved one. Your gift is fully deductible and supports the campus expansion.

questions? For more information, go to the Support the Mission section of our site > Campaign for PA > Building a Foundation: Capital Gifts > Name a Seat in the Connor Performing Arts Center. Here, you’ll not only find a seating chart for the auditorium, but you can download a Name a Seat form.

MEYER ENDOWED AWARD

kathleen pait ‘10 photo

for teaching excellence

our faculty PA faculty members are experts in their field. Many hold advanced degrees and have worlds of knowledge and experience to offer young minds. At the heart of the PA experience is the relationship that the faculty and students share: one built on mutual respect and genuine concern.

Each year, two outstanding PA teachers are the recipients of The Meyer Endowed Award for Teaching Excellence. These prestigious awards have come about because of a generous endowment established by alumni parents Chuck and Carole Meyer in honor of their daughters, Marley (Class of 1987) and Carissa (Class of 1990), whose lives were enriched as a result of their educational experiences at PA. Recipients of the 2008 Meyer Endowed Awards were Candy Anderson and Megan Abbott.

Teachers take time to get to know each student as an individual, and PA students thrive in this challenging yet nurturing environment. The faculty at PA is dedicated to inspiring students with a lifelong desire to learn and to reach their fullest potential, both in college and in life. candy anderson

amnesty brings awareness Led by US Social Studies Department Chair and AP teacher Bill Topich, PA’s Amnesty International group works to promote human rights through education and public awareness efforts. The group devoted three years to raising funds and awareness for the crisis in the Darfur region. Under the leadership of 2007-08 co-presidents Matt Swaim and Leslie Golden, the group brought the Darfur campaign to a close. The $6,000 raised will go to the International Rescue Committee, which helps to feed and house refugees from war-torn areas.

PA’s LS and MS teamed up to provide Thanksgiving dinners for Central Arkansas families in need. In the spirit of giving, the MS Student Council sponsored a food drive, with donations going to Potluck Food Rescue for Arkansas. MS students brought dollars for turkeys, collecting enough money to purchase 91 birds. LS students brought specific food items based on grade level and, in total, collected 615 items.

PA’S FIRST THANKATHON! PA’s very first Thank-a-thon took place in September and was a tremendous success. Middle and Upper School students made thank-you calls to the previous year’s Annual Fund donors, and recipients of the phone calls were undoubtedly thrilled! VOLUNTEERS: Jennie Cole & Shanon Greer STUDENT CALLERS: Chris Bell, Carter Cole, Callie Cole, Chris Cole, Robert Joiner, Alex Hopper, Brandon Jones, Sydney Copeland, Hunter Paddie, Beckie Prince, Grayson Greer, Zachary Kelley

BLUE & GOLD CHALLENGE GRANT PROVES SUCCESSFUL! The Blue & Gold Challenge Grant was a huge success with over 40 new $500 gifts. Challenge grants have been the springboard to the Annual Fund’s success for the last eight years, dating back to when PA received its first anonymous grant. Challenge grant donors have faith in PA parents, grandparents, alums, and friends and seek to inspire continued support for the Annual Fund with their pledge to match gifts dollar for dollar. Thanks to all who helped to meet the challenge and provide yet another noteworthy year for the Annual Fund!
