On January 22 I had the opportunity to take part in the ground breaking at The North Carolina Leadership Academy. The ground breaking symbolized many things for The NCLA. It symbolized the continuation of the journey we all began this school year, and the future of this school. On this cold winter day we were surrounded by the community leaders, students, the board, and staff to continue the journey. After the ground was broke we enjoyed dinner, and began planning for the years to come. The building will hopefully be completed in June of 2014, and will open in August of 2014 with 600 new students and staff.
