Friday, September 15th, 2017, Bayside Academy honored their founders.  My husband, Carlton Niemeyer represented the board of trustees.  In the early 70’s , sixteen fathers went to a local banker and signed for a loan to purchase the Catholic Jesuit School located in Daphne, Alabama.  The first question that the banker asked the men, do you have any experience?  Of course, the answer was no.  The location was the key.  This school which is a landmark in Daphne is located on 900 front feet of Mobile Bay.  The grounds are breathtaking with majestic oaks and views of Mobile skylights.  How the campus has grown since the vision of these 16 individuals who signed on the dotted line.  Today, the campus has grown and now grades begin with a 4 year old program to 12th grade.  Thank you to all of these men for having this vision and going the extra mile.
