“BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW THIS” …. Jimmie Dyess was in the first class (1927) to graduate from Academy of Richmond County at the new Walton Way Campus. The last class of ARC at the Telfair Campus was 1926 where Dyess spent his earlier years…so he is a “DOUBLE MUSKETEER.”
Oh…and his Senior Class ARC nickname was “PINKEY.”
