On Monday, May 21, 2018, the school community gathered to dedicate The Mohammed Abu Ghazaleh Courtyard, which honors of the generosity of Mohammad and Mahira Abu Ghazaleh, long-time friends and supporters of King’s Academy, and grandparents to King’s students Mohammad Abu Ghazaleh ’20 and Tara Abu Ghazaleh ’22.
The dedication of The Mohammad Abu Ghazaleh Courtyard celebrates Mohammad and Mahira Abu Ghazaleh’s belief in the importance of education and in supporting educational institutions to provide youth with the best start in life.
“Mohammad Abu Ghazaleh is the cornerstone of an incredible family that has supported King’s Academy in countless ways over the years,” said Head of School John Austin. “We are lucky to number him and his wife Mahira among our community of grandparents, and I am delighted to recognize their outstanding support of our school.”
“Here in this courtyard, our Middle School students and our faculty gather to play and learn,” continued Austin. “As students, parents, visitors and guests arrive on campus, they will pass through this courtyard bearing the Abu Ghazaleh name. I can think of no better way for them to be welcomed to our campus and our school than by a space honoring a family that is so committed to King’s, its students and its mission.”
