Rockdale County community member Tom Harrison, shown here with wife Lorraine Harrison, recently won $5,000 in a reverse raffle contest at Peachtree Academy's Annual Fundraising Gala in April. Harrison donated some of the earnings to the school's annual scholarship fund. The gala, which featured a cocktail reception, prime rib dinner catered by Plain Nuts Catering, entertainment, silent and live auctions, dancing and the raffle, raised money for the expansion of the robotics program, art and band programs, student scholarships, expansion of the Conyers campus and the completion of the football field. Lead business sponsors this year included SEC, Asurety Construction Services, ShareCare, Strictly Mechanical, BB&T, Charleston Lewis & Associates, Pawn Depot and Clairon Metals. Peachtree Academy is a private school serving preschool, elementary, middle and high school children, with campuses in both Rockdale and Newton counties.
