Herald of Aug. 27, 2009

The Spring Cove School District dedicated its new $14.8 million elementary school on Sunday, Aug. 30, with a simple but “sincere” ceremony.

When the official ribbon cutting got slightly out of sync, Master of Ceremonies and Superintendent Rodney L. Green told the audience, ‘We’re not always smooth, but we’re always sincere.”

The rest of the ceremony went smoothly and according to plan. The Rev. H. Lloy Blattenberger, board of education member, offered an invocation, Mr. Green offered thank-yous and Board President James H. Butler made a few remarks.

Butler then introduced John R. Biddle, vice-president of the board of education and a former teacher. Biddle offered the keynote speech, contrasting the new, modern, high-tech building around him with the Cove’s earliest days of public education in a log cabin.

Mr. Biddle first noted that it had been 492 days since the groundbreaking for the building and that “together, ordinary people have accomplished something extraordinary.”
