Regents Academy students, faculty, and parents participated in the first annual BIG Serve school-wide service project on March 26, 2010.
All students in grades K-12 spread across Nacogdoches to serve their community by partnering with Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful, Willowbrook Nursing Center, the Nacogdoches Chamber of Commerce, and Love INC. Students served senior adults, beautified downtown, painted benches along the Lanana Creek Trail, and cleaned and painted an area disabled senior adult’s home. What a great day of service it was! The students, parents, and faculty alike serve with joyful hearts and eager attitudes. The Nacogdoches community noticed.
The “BIG” in the BIG Serve stands for “Blessed in Giving.” We believe that as our students serve others, they are blessed, just as much as the ones they serve. The BIG Serve service projects were coordinated a school-wide fundraiser that has, as of April 11, raised more than $34,000 for the school building fund, directly benefiting the school’s ongoing mission and day-to-day operations.
Regents Academy is a classical and Christian school seeking to shape tomorrow’s leaders with an excellent education and Christian discipleship. Service, our students learned, is a keynote of this vision.
