Hotel Information  ◊ What to do in Chattanooga


As AAF celebrates its twenty-year anniversary, we wanted to do something new and exciting. Something that would encourage supporters of Adventist education to become more personally involved. This led to the first ever AAF Shark Tank Program! Modeled after the popular television show – the AAF Shark Tank gives a similar opportunity to Adventist secondary schools in the North American Division. AAF has selected a panel of distinguished “Sharks” comprised of donors with a desire to contribute – not only their resources, but also their expertise. After watching a short pitch, prepared and submitted by the students, the Sharks will have an opportunity to listen, ask questions and become inspired by academy projects. Special technology will give the audience an opportunity to join in the fun by submitting bids from their table.
