Forsyth Academy Celebrates 20 Years

Forsyth Academy celebrated 20 years by holding a community event, with a visit from Mayor Allen Joines. Joines has been Mayor of Winston-Salem since 2001 and has concentrated on rebuilding the economy and bringing the community together.
Forsyth Academy was established in 1999 and is one of the oldest schools in National Heritage Academies’ family of schools. The North Carolina State Board of Education has recently approved Forsyth Academy for a 10-year renewal.
“It is very exciting to have the Mayor of Winston-Salem here at our event,” said Wendy Barajas, principal at Forsyth Academy. “It shows that he understands the impact Forsyth Academy has on the community of North Winston-Salem and believes we are a great choice for student education.” 
The event included KONA ICE, games, bounce houses, music, food, face painting, and prizes, to name a few.
“I have named today Forysth Academy Day here in Winston-Salem,” said Joines, as he presented Barajas with the proclamation. “We are so proud of you and the work you’re doing in our community, and more importantly the work you’re doing for these young people.”
