In today’s ever-changing world, fostering entrepreneurship throughout your child’s education is vital. While an entrepreneurial education builds valuable skills — such as collaboration, data analysis and presentation skills — it also gives students an even more valuable tool for the future: Resilience.

Even before she was walking, Keaton Mitchell donned the gold and blue colors of Battle Ground Academy. She grew up a BGA Wildcat.
BGA advanced to a fourth consecutive state soccer championship match with a 5-0 win over Boyd Buchanan at Baylor School.
It was in his Lower School science class that BGA senior Luke Williams discovered his passion and career choice – engineering and robotics. In that class, Williams was given the opportunity to play with a Lego robotics kit, which sparked an interest that stuck with him.
Now, almost a decade later, Williams was able to provide that same opportunity to elementary students in Dickson, Tenn., by donating several sets of Lego robotics kits to Dickson Elementary School, which he purchased using his BGA Experiential Education Grant. The grant is valued at up to $5,000 and awarded to BGA students for study, travel abroad, or to create an enhanced out-of-classroom student experience.
The first weekend of November, BGA senior Bella Bugg will hit the links in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The Snedeker Foundation, and the American Junior Golf Association’s ACE Grant program. Joining other junior golfers from around the state, Bugg will play in the AJGA’s fourth annual Tennessee Cup, a two-day Ryder Cup-style event.
