Celebrating the Guild's Golden 50th Anniversary

Honoring all Lifetime Guild Members

Co-chairs Emily Hertz, Stephanie Johnson, and Hillary Shaw invite you to join us for the 2019 Language & Literacy Gala to celebrate an exciting milestone for the Atlanta Speech School: The 50th anniversary of the Atlanta Speech School Guild.  For half a century, the Guild has served as the volunteer and fundraising arm of the school, working to uphold founder Katherine Hamm's promise to help all children find their voice through language and literacy, regardless of their financial limitations.  The annual Gala helps maintain that important legacy by raising funds to support the School's need-based financial aid program.  This year's Gala will commemorate the Guild's 50 years of service with a Golden Anniversary Celebration honoring all Lifetime Guild Members, on Sunday, November 17, 2019, at the Atlanta History Center.  Join us!
