    This year, we are thrilled to have Kelly Gramlich return to her alma mater to speak to our graduating class. Ms. Gramlich is a 2011 AHS graduate who went on to play basketball at Clemson University and was named Academic All-ACC three times. She is currently a college basketball analyst for ACC network/ESPN. We will also hear from student leaders and music and songs from AHS band and chorale.
