Mr. Andy Sands ’89

Andy has deep roots in the local area and is well known among Hargrave alumni. He brings a passion and an in-depth understanding of Hargrave built over his years of association with the school.

Andy attended Hargrave Military Academy for 7 years, graduating in 1989. He attended Louisburg College in Louisburg, NC. After college, Andy worked in the HVAC industry for 30 years in various senior sales roles. He and his wife Sharon have lived and raised their sons, Griffin and Porter, in their home in Cascade, VA for the past 22 years. Andy is excited to return to Hargrave and lead as Chief Advancement Officer. 

Having grown up on the grounds of Hargrave, I am excited to help the advancement of the academy. Hargrave holds a special place in my heart and I look forward to helping the academy grow.
