Dear Hardaway Alumni,
We have some exciting news! This year all donations will go
to specific projects, which will benefit Hardaway High School
and the student body in many ways.
1. Beginning in the 2017-2018 school
year, Georgia students are no longer receiving free AP exams.
In an effort to ensure that Hardaway’s students have
an opportunity to receive college credits while enrolled
in high school, we will help fund the AP World Literature
and AP World History exams (72 total exams). The total amount
needed to accomplish this is $7,600.
2. The classroom experience of Hardaway students is very important.
Students enrolled in Visual Arts are in need of 30 Digital
Drawing Tablets. The cost to fund this request is $1,700.
3. Many of you will remember the first principal of Hardaway,
Dewey Renfroe. We have uncovered the pledge made in 1966 to
dedicate the courtyard at the back of the school to Mr. Renfroe.
This has never been done. To erect a plaque in his honor and
conduct a fitting dedication ceremony the cost would be approximately
4. In May, the Hardaway Alumni Association donated $1,500
for Phase I of a permanent Wall of Pictures in the cafeteria.
To continue this project, additional funds are needed. The
size of the space to be filled with pictures determines the
cost. Phase II cost is approximately $1,500.
These projects combined will require $12,100. Would you help
us meet our goal? These are possible projects. Depending on
the amount of funds raised, the Board of Directors will determine
the project(s) that will be undertaken.
As a suggestion, you may want to consider
donating according to the year you graduated. For example;
if you graduated in 2003, you could donate $20.03, $200.30
or $2,003.00. No matter what year you graduated, it’s
a fun way to determine the amount of your donation this year.
Please send your check today to Hardaway

No matter what amount you are in a position to donate, your
contribution will be used in a significant way as our Mission
states; “The Hardaway High School Alumni Association
exists to provide resources for Hardaway High School,” while
enhancing the educational experience of Hardaway students.
Our previous projects to support our mission include purchasing
a $5,000 sound system for the auditorium, replacing $3,500
worth of softball equipment that was stolen, buying a $900
Euphonium for the music department, donating $9,300 for the
purchase and installation of an LED sign at the entrance of
the school, and $1,500 for Phase I of the Wall of Pictures
Project in the Cafeteria.
We thank you for championing YOUR school and its students.
Your donation is tax deductible.
