Alex G. Luttrell, gained his wings in a car accident on October 15, 2017. During his time in this life, Alex became a very accomplished musician, singer and actor. He was involved in Band, Chorus and Drama at his beloved South Paulding High School. During his time at SPHS, he participated in ALL of the musicals. His Junior year, he played the role of the Spartan Warrior King in the Marching Band’s halftime show “Spartan Odyssey.” He also appeared in the “Ant-Man and the Wasp" movie and on TV. Those around him were infected by his charismatic spirit and entertained by his hilarious antics. Alex was known for his hair flips, nicknames and alter egos. Caring about others was in his bones and the Alex G. Luttrell Over the Rainbow Foundation will carry on this legacy by providing scholarships to performing arts students.
The AGL Foundation offers scholarships to upcoming high school graduates who are entering college to study Fine & Performing Arts.
When Alex was a baby, his mother sang "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" to him while she rocked him. By the time he was 2 years old he had the song memorized and would sing it with her. There was a short period in his life where he was having bad dreams so his mother told him "I'll see you on the other side of the Rainbow" as he was going to sleep. Alex even drew a picture of his mother and a pot of gold standing on one side of the Rainbow and Alex and his dog standing on the other side. Alex and his Mother always sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow together for the rest of his life and they would share pictures of Rainbows whenever they would spot one in the sky. The rainbow was special to Alex during life and the song was played at his funeral, and both will forever hold a special place in the hearts of Alex's loved ones.
Out of darkness, helping young adults reach the stars.
