The Atlanta Families’ Awards for Excellence in Education (AFAEE) is a program that understands how critical teacher and leader quality are in ensuring that every child receives an excellent education. To promote this belief, the AFAEE recognizes outstanding teachers and school leaders each year and has expanded its reach for the 2015-2016 school year to include the following five Metro Atlanta school districts: Atlanta Public Schools, Cobb County Schools, DeKalb County Schools, Fulton County Schools, and Gwinnett County Schools.

Direct Hits has been an active supporter of AFAEE over the last four years with both financial and in-kind support. In addition, Ted Griffith serves on the AFAEE Board as Treasurer and Chair of the Legal and Finance Committee.
