APTRA Academy
Mentors for APTRA Academy 2004
This is the list of people who have agreed to participate in this year's 5th Anniversary APTRA Academy. I fully expect more pros to be added to this list and, between now and October, a few to have to be deleted due to a conflict here or there. We will update this list every Monday as we do with the rest of Thanks to all of those mentors participating who are giving of their time to help those who have dreams of being just like them!!!
