Below is a sampling of our students’ success STORIES... • The class of 2019 included 43 graduates with 81 percent receiving the HOPE Scholarship and 36 percent earning Zell Miller HOPE. The class included five Georgia Scholar Awards and three National AP Scholars with Honor. • Our Literary Team won first runner up at region and second runner up at the state competition. Westfield students placed in twelve categories at region and five categories at state, including two first place finishes at region and one state championship. • Our Senior Beta Club, Upper School Student Council, and other student clubs organized numerous community service projects including a Blood Drive to benefit the American Red Cross, Kids’ Give to benefit Perry Volunteer Outreach, and our annual Red Out to benefit the American Heart Association. • Our athletics teams had great success with the varsity softball team clinching the state championship, varsity baseball earning the region title, individual wrestlers winning state titles, and the varsity girls’ basketball and varsity football team advancing to the state playoffs. • We experienced record level participation in the GOAL Scholarship program with 130 donors redirecting over $532,000 to benefit Westfield - our highest total since inception of the program! • Contributions to the Annual Fund allowed Westfield to purchase security gates, install a campus-wide public address system, and lay new flooring in the Lower School Building.

As we move into the 2019-2020 school year, I invite you to help us celebrate Westfield’s 50th anniversary! In honor of this important milestone, we have launched a special 50th Anniversary Campaign- Honoring our Past & Building our Future. The funds raised through this campaign will benefit the renovation of our existing Gymnatorium to include a new foyer, restrooms, Spirit Shop, and acoustical panels for better sound quality. These enhancements will allow us to better serve our students, parents, and visitors for events such as Grandparents’ Day, baccalaureate and graduation, athletic events, and more. We hope you will show your support for this special campaign. Thank you again for your dedication to Westfield. I am confident with your support, Westfield will launch into the next fifty years as a continuing force in education for middle Georgia. Sincerely,

Research shows that fine arts instruction helps children develop fine motor skills, build selfconfidence, and develop critical thinking skills. Students at every grade level are inspired to draw, paint, perform, and sing through instruction in the fine arts -- an essential element of a quality education.
On the athletic field and court, Westfield students learn leadership, Christian values, and important life lessons such as sportsmanship, camaraderie, hard work, time management, moral character, and self-discipline.
Westfield won runner up in the 2019 GISA 4AAA region literary meet and second runner-up in the state literary. Senior Charles Cartwright won state champion in Impromptu Speaking, and Andrew Collins and Olivia Eubanks placed first in Argumentative Essay and Rhetorical Analysis Essay at region competition.
State Champions: The Lady Hornets varsity softball team earned back-to-back titles, clinching the 2018 GISA AAA state championship in game three against Bulloch Academy. The Lady Hornets finished the season with a final record of 27-3 as region and state champions.
One Act Play earned second in the GISA region championship for their outstanding performance of Our Place by Terry Gabbard. Senior Nate Sizemore received a state Outstanding Performer Award. The Upper School drama department presented 13 Signs You Should Stop Being a Pirate by A.M. Dittman as this year’s drama production. First graders performed The First Thanksgiving, one of Westfield’s beloved traditions, while second graders shared a wonderful production of Mr. Popper’s Penguins, another long-time Westfield favorite.

The GOAL Scholarship Program provides an incredible opportunity for individuals and corporations to make a significant contribution to Westfield, while receiving a dollar for dollar state tax credit. Westfield began participating in GOAL in June 2009. Since that time, more than $2.5 million dollars has been redirected to GOAL on Westfield’s behalf. These funds are used to offer need-based financial assistance to incoming Westfield students. During the 2018 Georgia General Assembly, lawmakers voted to increase the cap on this program from $58 to $100 million. Due to the massive increase, Westfield had our best GOAL season to date with 130 donors redirecting $532,050. Thank you to our 2019 donors. If you are interested in contributing to GOAL in 2020, we encourage you to act now. Please visit www.goalscholarship.org or contact Laura Medlin, Director of Development, at email@example.com.
