In Honor of Kevin Wylie
This holiday season AYBA is again supporting one of our AYBA families. A year ago we lost Kevin Wylie, a former coach and leader at AYBA. Many of our parents and children knew Kevin very well through all of the volunteering work he did at Alpharetta Elementary and at the many sports organizations that he was a part of- including Alpharetta Youth Football Association, Roadrunner Baseball and Alpharetta Youth Baseball Association. Please help us support this family and give thanks to a wonderful person who did so much for our school.
