PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) The Faith School Fund Raising Committee recently received the Associated School Boards of South Dakota Community Service Award. The committee-lead by Chairman Carv Thompson-spearheaded Faith’s efforts to build a new school. Two years ago, 25 community members were appointed to a committee which was tasked with raising funds to help build a new K-12 school building. Less than a year after their appointment, the committee had raised over $1 million dollars for the project. Faith’s former building, which was constructed in 1910, was condemned by the State Fire Marshal in 2004. Students then attended classes in modular buildings and the old school was demolished in 2009. School for the Faith District started on Monday. The Faith Education Committee held 18 formal meetings during their fundraising effort and the group was presented with the award at the ASBSD and the School Administrators of South Dakota Convention on August 9 in Sioux Falls. The award was accepted on the committee’s behalf by Faith Superintendent Elsie Baye and Principal Kelly Daughters.
