GLYNN ACADEMY ALMA MATER

'Mong the Lordly Oaks of Brunswick
Glorious to our view,
Stands our own beloved high school
Basking 'Neath the view.

May we never fail,
For thy fame shall never perish

We will always be.

The mission of the Alumni Association is to preserve the tradition and heritage of Glynn Academy: to provide a resource for excellence in education activities; help protect the historic buildings and grounds; and to provide a dynamic association for graduates, faculty and friends to communicate.
The Alumni Association was organized November 5, 1996 in the Glynn Academy auditorium, Brunswick, Georgia.
With the support from the Glynn County School Superintendent Dr. David C. Mosley and Glynn Academy's Principal at that time, Joseph Barrow, a group of about
100 alumni and faculty elected officers and started, what many called, "a long overdue organization." Today, we have well over 2000 alumni who
have requested our newsleter to keep in touch with the progress of their alma mater.
