Galloway Speaker Series

Elliott Galloway was a visionary, an innovator and a true humanitarian. But perhaps above all, Elliott Galloway was an inspiration. In celebration of the school’s 40th anniversary in 2010, Galloway initiated a Speaker Series to promote and leverage Elliott Galloway’s vision. The Speaker Series has featured guests including Hank Aaron, Ted Turner, President Jimmy Carter, Congressman John Lewis, Heifer International CEO Pierre Ferrari, Ambassador Andrew Young, and news anchor Monica Kaufman Pearson.

The goals for the speaker series are to promote and demonstrate the vitality of Galloway to the community at large and to re-engage alumni, alumni parents and former Trustees of the school as well as to leverage the school’s origins in a way that securely defines the school’s “future thinking” and brand positioning.

The Galloway School strives to realize everyone’s potential by fostering a sense of self, showing an appreciation for others, engaging in creative problem solving, and taking on life’s varied challenges with enthusiasm and determination. 

The speaker in 2018 was Monica Kaufman Pearson, the first woman and first minority news anchor in Atlanta, who was on air with WSB-TV for 37 years. 

Fall Fun Fest

Each autumn, The Galloway School Parents Association hosts a Fall Fun Fest on campus. The event offers fun and entertainment for kids of all ages and is open to current Galloway families, Galloway alumni and their families, and all of our neighbors in and around Chastain Park. Activities include games, jumpies, arts and crafts, as well as food trucks, entertainment, a haunted house, prizes, baked treats, a sweet walk, and more.

Fall Fun Fest will be held on October 20, 2018Learn more here »

Scots Sports Open (Elliott's Run)

The philosophy of our founder, Elliott Galloway, always included the pursuit of good health and fitness. “The physically fit body leads to a sound mind and peaceful soul,” he wrote. Since 1971, Elliott’s 5K and 1-mile Fun Run have helped celebrate this vision. This event has expanded to include a wider range of activities, including a soccer and softball tournament, to appeal to the entire community. The event is held annually in the fall at the Galloway Athletics Complex on DeFoors Ferry Road.

The Scots Sports Open was held as part of the Galloway Community Weekend, on August 26, 2018.

Elliott's Evening

Galloway's biennial Gala is a fun-filled evening out for parents, teachers, and community members complete with dinner, dancing, and silent and live auctions. Always executed with style and great attention to detail, Elliott's Evening is one of the highlights of the year for the Galloway community. Proceeds from the evening support the Elliott Galloway Scholarship Fund.
