Series of Thankfulness: AGS

3:23 PM



Where to begin...I mean wow. AGS has been a part of my life since the summer of 2004 when my big brother Perry (yay Peej!) went there for Instrumental Music. From spending a good amount of time visiting there, I knew I wanted to come. And the following summer, I went there for Drama. AGS helped me through a dark and difficult time in my youth. The freedom and the awakening was beautiful. And I knew I wanted to help recreate that experience for others. The following summer, in 2006, my brother was back there helping with the gospel choir and I tagged along in spirit. Then, in 2007, my time of working there began.

For six glorious summers, I served as gospel choir director for AGS. Meeting amazing students, singing, worshiping...seriously, some of the best experiences of my life. In addition to the choir, I filled MANY other roles, Resident Assistant, Office Assistant, Music Room Monitor...and whatever else was requested of me. It has been an absolute pleasure working with my colleagues at AGS. I seriously canNOT think of a better way to spend my summers since 2004. In fact, now that I'm in Chi-town, I have NO idea what I'll do with my summers lol. But, I know God has a way of working these things out, and I'm excited to for this journey :)

It has truly been a glorious time indeed at AGS! I seriously can't imagine my life without it. A blessing and an all-around fabulous learning experience that I wouldn't trade for anything :)

  1. While my stint at AGS was not as long lasting as yours(as I only went my summer), I'd have to wholeheartedly agree with the fact that AGS was one of the key moments in my life as far as making me who I am today. There I learned that it was quite alright to be myself and to be unapologetic for doing so. I always look back on that summer with fondness at all of the great friends I made that and the experiences I had. That and the boy bands.

    1. Yes! It was so great to be in a place that allows you to be free to express yourself and really learn who you are. It was such a great experience, and I will value and cherish it always. And yes. Boy bands were the 2nd reason that I love AGS lol.
