Mourning the Passing of Louis Appell Jr.

doveLogos Academy, along with the rest of the York Community, mourns the loss of Louis Appell Jr. who was a business man, community leader and philanthropist. Aaron Anderson, Head of School at Logos, said:
The Logos Academy Community offers its deepest condolences to, and prayers for Jodi (Louis’ wife) and the Appell family.  Louis leave behind a legacy of care and compassion for his community. Logos Academy owes a debt of gratitude to Mr. Appell and will seek to honor his legacy by carrying on his sprit of generosity toward our students, families, and the broader York community.
Traci Foster, Founder of Logos, added:
He [Louis] was a true gentleman – humble and gracious, no nonsense and always inspiring you to be your best.  I will miss our interactions and remain grateful for his influence on me personally as well as the establishment of Logos Academy.

We’ve lost a friend, mentor and champion and yet, we are grateful that his influence will live on for years to come.

Celebrating our Founders

Connie Rae and Traci Foster, Logos Academy Founders

In 1998, the mighty hand of God moved in the hearts of two local women, Traci Foster and Connie Rae, to make a difference in the educational crisis plaguing York City. Fueled by faith in Christ, these women poured there passion into the lives of 14 young students that first year. Over the next decade, the journey led them to meet in three local churches and introduce Logos Academy to community partners who would provide much needed financial assistance.

Today, Logos serves more than 250 students on its own campus constructed in 2010 at 250 West King Street. Students and families are welcomed regardless of faith or financial capacity. Last year we provided more than 1.8 million in scholarship to make our vibrant learning community accessible to everyone.

On April 21, at 6pm we are excited to hold our Founders Event where we will celebrate the legacy of Traci and Connie and what God has done through their work. It will be a special evening for all who care about Logos and an important one too as we are planning on discussing important opportunities to support Logos.

We would love to have you present with us for this important and special moment.
