3rd Annual Spring Gala


The 3rd Annual Spring Gala was a great success!  The Gala featured local band "Deas Guyz," food, drinks, and silent and live auctions with hundreds of items.  This was a great event that allowed alumni, parents, and members of the community to reconnect with old friends, learn about exciting things happening at THA, and help raise money for our alma mater!  The Gala raised approximately $27,000 and will provide more education and technology enhancements for our students.  Over the past two years, the Gala has raised over $40,000 and provided students and teachers with wi-fi, laptops, projectors, and improvements to the library.  Thank you for your donations and help in making THA great!
