A project that many have watched unfold on Main Street in Moncks Corner came to fruition on Feb. 6 as St. John’s Christian Academy held a ribbon cutting ceremony and dedication of its new Welcome Center.

Speakers included Berkeley County Supervisor Dan Davis, Moncks Corner Mayor Bill Peagler, Berkeley Chamber of Commerce Board Member Kevin Housand, original founding chairman of the St. John’s Education Foundation Will West, current chairman of the Education Foundation Board Chris Biering, and SJCA Chairman of the Board Bill McCall.

Cub Scout pack 717 raised the flag that Rep. Eddy Southard contributed from the Statehouse. His representative that day was his niece, seventh grader Casey Southard.

Fourth grader Katelyn Ware opened the ceremony with a word of prayer. School nurse Jeanne Caison and teacher’s aide Shannon Rusch, along with their children, sang a Christian hymn.

“It’s nice to start the day with prayer and song,” Davis said. “It is a change from most schools today.” SJCA Headmaster Dr. Eric Denton called the center “a dream come true, and it is our prayer that this building will be dedicated to helping children and young people excel academically and develop strong personal relationships with the Lord.”

SJCA welcomes all visitors and new families to come tour the new facility. An open house was set for March 4-6 for families considering enrollment. For more information, call (843) 761-8539, visit www.sjcacavaliers.com or join the school’s Facebook page.
