The Tindley Family is excited to announce that Tindley Prep’s Jordan Garrett (6th) and Tindley Collegiate’s Jakeia Pruitt (7th) have been awarded the Abrams Academic Achievement Award presented by the Indiana Pacers!
In 2001 the Abrams Academic Achievement Award was established, in partnership with the Indiana Pacers team ophthalmologist, Dr. John Abrams, as an incentive program for grade school students. The program’s goal is to reward a student who has overcome obstacles, excelled in academics and deserves positive reinforcement for their dedication.
Garrett and Pruitt were selected along with 10 other middle school students across central Indiana to have shown substantial academic improvement and served as a role model in their classes. Along with this achievement, Garrett and Pruitt will also receive Four Tickets to see the Indiana Pacers take on the New York Knicks on February 24th (one ticket for the recipient and three tickets for guests), a pre-game reception, recognition of their achievement in front of hundreds of fans during halftime, a Pacers Fun Pack, and a special surprise gift! That’s a lot of stuff!
But don’t take it from me, take it from George Hill himself!!
Congratulations Jordan! Have fun at the game!

Twenty five scholars were inducted into the inaugural class of the Tindley Preparatory Academy National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). During the ceremony, the boys heard an inspirational message from Pastor Corey Duncan.
A big thank you goes out to Ms. Gilbert, the chapter adviser, for coordinating the ceremony!
More than just an honor roll, NJHS serve to honor those scholars who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character and Citizenship. Membership in NJHS is not only a way to recognize Tindley Preparatory Academy scholars for their accomplishments but also challenges them to do more through community service and school activities.
