We have over 1,600 alumni who are truly making an impact in our community and around the world as they serve as salt and light in today's culture through their chosen professions. It is a always a joy and inspiration to see them come home either for the Homecoming game, during their class reunions, or just stopping by to stay in touch with their Alma Mater. We are privileged to be able to teach their children and even grandchildren, as they send them to ACS for the quality, Christian-based education they received in a previous generation.
Keeping in contact and continuing to foster relationships with our alumni through social media, email, and bi-yearly mail communication is a continued and rewarding effort.
We would love for all alumni of Athens Christian School to stay in touch and get the latest news.
For Email Newsletters you can trust.
ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT : DANIEL MACDONALD
Daniel got his start in Mock Trial at ACS. He has competed and excelled on the UGA Mock Trial Team for 3 years, and this year, he was the Captain of the UGA Mock Trial Team that competed at Nationals.
From April 8th to April 10th, the UGA Undergraduate Mock Trial Team competed at the National Championship Tournament in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Captained by Daniel MacDonald and Justin Xu, the team faced high-level competition from the University of Wisconsin, UCLA, Washington & Lee, and Miami University. While over 700 teams competed at regional competitions this year, the UGA team placed 3rd in their division and 5th in the country at the national tournament and won All-American individual awards for competitors Bryan Walker and Tyonna Byers. The team also won the Spirit of AMTA award which is awarded to the team that best exemplifies the ideals of honesty, civility, and fair play.
After Cimber's graduation from ACS in 2006, she then attended Liberty University in Central Virginia where she completed her Bachelor's in Psychology & a Master's degree in Education. She then spent the next four years working both as a Resident Director and Associate Director within Liberty's Office of Student Leadership. There she had the privilege to train, teach, and disciple both college leaders and the university's Residence Staff.
Nearly four years ago, Cimber moved to East Texas to pursue a position as the College Ministry Director at Grace Community Church. It was in Tyler, Texas where Cimber felt compelled to write her debut book "twenty something: the things you wish someone told you about your twenties from one gal to another." Cimber has made it both her professional and personal ministry to serve, love, and equip twenty-somethings within the church, and believes this book will encourage all women trying to navigate that particularly dynamic decade.
In her spare time, Cimber can usually be found traveling or eating, binge-watching shows about traveling or eating, or running (because of all the eating). Her new book is available on Amazon. Check out her blog, written to influence young Christian women in their walk with the Lord. CIMBER'S BLOG
After graduating in 2017, Ivan went to UNG for a year before moving to UGA. While at UNG he worked as a biology research assistant and was Vice President of the Honor Society. During his first year at UGA he started the Meme Studies Club and began working in the Clinical Neuroscience Laboratory on an MRI neuroimaging study. Also, he briefly worked on a project with NASA (project FUSION) and presented at an undergraduate research conference.
During his junior year at UGA, Ivan helped to begin the creation of a neuroscience major and joined the Undergraduate Neuroscience Organization. He just recently was accepted to present at the Organization for Human Brain Mapping conference in Montreal this summer. When he realized the UGA graduation ceremony would no longer take place due to COVID-19, he took it upon himself to rally people together and begin construction of Sanford Stadium in Minecraft so that the disappointed seniors at UGA could have a virtual graduation.
Ivan’s career goals are to go to grad school and get a PhD in neuroscience so he can perform biomedical research on memory, hoping to treat neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia.
