Aquiles La Grave, who attended Farragut with the class of ‘98, was awarded an honorary diploma on behalf of the board of directors during the graduation for the class of 2019.
Aquiles was a quiet and reserved student-athlete at Farragut in the mid-nineties but unfortunately after only a couple of years attending Farragut personal events led Aquiles to have to move back home and finish his high school diploma elsewhere. Aquiles shared one of his biggest regrets was not being able to complete his high school diploma at Farragut. Admiral Farragut Academy’s Headmaster Robert Fine presented Aquiles La Grave an honorary diploma.
Today Aquiles is the Founder and CEO of Boulder, Colorado-based Brandzooka, a self-service, programmatic video marketing platform for small business. He holds a BA from Naropa University and a Specialization Certificate from The Johns Hopkins University. Aquiles writes for publications such as AdAge and DowJones and speaks regularly on subjects ranging from Entrepreneurship and Ad Tech to Agile and Product development practices.
