STA's annual Grandparent's Day was once again a raging success!  More than 460 grandparents gathered with their grandchildren for a morning of prayer, breakfast, and treasured time together.  "I am so grateful for this time," said senior Laikyn Lauderdale.  "When you are a freshman you just take all this for granted, but now as a senior, I realize this is my last Grandparent's Day. I'm going off to college in six months and I won't be able to see my grandparents just any time I want.  We are so fortunate that STA gives us this opportunity!"
