Zaxby's Franchising Inc. made a $125,000 donation today to Prince Avenue Christian in Athens, Ga., to help develop additional facilities, programs and technology.
"Prince Avenue Christian School has continued to provide its students the resources and environment that allow them to excel and grow," said Tony Townley, executive vice president and co-founder of Zaxby's. "Our company is honored to help expand Prince's facilities and pave the way for many more bright futures."
The pre-K through 12th-grade school serves more than 800 students from 13 counties. The school's building campaign will allow for more classrooms, as well as technology advancements, and the enhancement of its fine arts, lunchroom and athletic buildings, including a field house with a weight room and locker room.
"We are delighted by the generosity of Zaxby's and their investment in this community," said Richard Ricketts, athletic director of PACS, who also works as a part of the school's committee for fundraising and growth. "This donation will allow us to begin the first phase of our planned development. I know the students and their parents couldn't be more excited.
The school anticipates beginning construction in January and hopes to introduce some of its new additions when it opens its doors for the 2013-2014 school year.
