First Baptist Church Pre-K Graduates 100 Students
Mrs. Susan Daigle, director, stated that the church raised enough money to be able to provide each student with a new Bible as their graduation gift. The students will advance into public school kindergarten for the next school year.
First Baptist Church Pre-K will turn 50 years old in 2009. The school was a vision of Mrs. Sally Howard in 1959. Her purpose was to provide a Christian setting that gave young children an added advantage before they started their public school experience.
Mrs. Howard started with a kindergarten in home and then moved to the church in 1959 to be able to provide education for more children.
