Raymond Edward Baltz III Memorial Fund

AYA will always be blessed to have had Raymond Baltz as a friend and enthusiastic volunteer on our campus. Raymond tragically passed away in April of 2020. His name and legacy will be a part of our school forever.

In March of 2020, a group of Raymond’s closest friends decided to create a memorial fund at AYA as part of Raymond’s legacy.  With an annual golf tournament celebrating Raymond’s birthday, these young men have raised nearly $100,000. These funds are in an endowment which will annually provide scholarship funding to support a selected Baltz Scholar. In December of 2021, the second annual Raymond Baltz Memorial Golf Tournament was held at the Bobby Jones Golf Course. This tournament will be held annually to continue to grow Raymond's legacy.

This year's event will be held on Friday, December 23. Due to cold temperatures, Raymond's friends will enjoy bowling together instead of playing golf.
