Emerald Christian Academy Dedication
Ron Krueger, new principal at Emerald Christian Academy in Eugene, Ore., called students and staff together on Sept. 11, for a school-wide dedication.
Honor Guard members from Springfield Pathfinder Club—Heather Conklin, Mary Jo Hough, Teala Wells, and Cara Strong—posted colors and conducted the Pledge of Allegiance, while students Amanda Wadkins and Michelle Spresser led the school in the National Anthem.
Area pastors Dave McCoy and Chuck Burkeen offered prayers of hope, challenge, and commitment, and a memorial prayer for victims of the 2001 disaster. •
