More than 260 supporters of the Albany City Schools came together to honor Kizzy Williams, Young Futures Co., John Keal Music Company, and retiring Board members Onnolee Smith and Barry Walston. The record $80,000 raised will allow AFE to continue and expand its grants program, hunger relief initiatives, and support for arts and music in the district.
