On Thursday, April 18, a group of 24 HCA Beta Club members volunteered at the Paulding County Special Olympics track and field event. Thank you to all of these students, and to Mrs. Chaney Billips for her amazing leadership.

Hawk Serve Day

HCA went above and beyond the goal of preparing 10,000 meals during Hawk Serve Day. Partnering with Rise Against Hunger, HCA students, faculty, staff, and parent volunteers helped to prepare 17,000 meals!

It was truly a special day in the life of our school. We appreciate those who provided financial support as well as those who came to prepare the meals. If you would still like to contribute to this effort, please send your check to the the school as soon as possible. Remember, about $100 is equal to 40 meals!
