Our New Principal
Our school has a new principal. Henry H. Flomo comes to us from the Confidence School of Liberia where he was acting principal. Mr. Flomo has a “C” certificate from the Liberian Ministry of Education, and taught school for many years before returning to college to complete his Bachelor’s degree. In 2015 he graduated from the University of Liberia, majoring in Public Administration and Accounting. Mr. Flomo replaces Mr. Charles Koko who will move to the newly created position of farm manager. Mr. Koko has a degree in Agriculture, and will focus on increasing crop yields at our recently expanded 15-acre farm adjacent to the school.
Cafeteria and Kitchen Fundraising
Thanks to all of the individuals and churches that donated to our Campus Improvement campaign this summer. The Presbytery of the Western Reserve designated $15,000 in mission funds to match your donations, and we now have a total of $30,000 to make our dreams a reality. During the next year we’ll be building an improved kitchen and a new cafeteria for our students and faculty. Additional projects include new “right-sized” classroom furniture for our youngest students, library shelves and furniture, and some much needed classroom repairs.
