Some of the students from May Howard Elementary were very instrumental in the program as they led the Pledge of Allegiance, recited poetry, and serenaded the audience through song. Mrs. Lesley Taylor, principal, shared how excited she was to begin this new journey with the school. District 4 School Board Representative, Mr. Shawn A. Kachmar, school Board President, Ms. Jolene Byrne, and Superintendent Dr. Thomas B. Lockamy, Jr. all shared their heartfelt sentiments about this momentous occasion.

Dr. John Howard, grandson, and Dr. Julie Howard, great-grand daughter of May DuBignon Howard, were there to witness the groundbreaking ceremony. The new school is projected to be ready for its students in fall 2017.
