You tend to get more cynical as you age – it’s called wisdom – but I was struck by the dedication and goals of the private, college prep school in Louisville named the West End School. Founded by devout Christians, funded by a combination of sources, and supported by large numbers of volunteers, the school is also aligned with basketball star Darrell Griffith – a name well known to old UK fan and younger NBA fans – who has lent his name, support and time. The quality of workers and young men boarders is very impressive, and I pray for the continued success of this venture. The school was featured last week on Bluegrass and Backroads, a weekly RFDTV show sponsored by the Kentucky Farm Bureau. Here’s the show episode link and the description at You Tube: http://bluegrassandbackroads.com/2015/03/west-end-school/
West End School is a free, private, college preparatory elementary and middle school for at-risk young men. Admission is open to boys entering pre-kindergarten through second-grade or sixth grade who are on free or reduced lunch, are capable of doing academic work at grade level or above and who would benefit from a safe environment and high expectations.
