September 21. 2020 – Faith Christian Academy’s Owner and Founding Board Member, Sandy Wakefiled, pens a message of appreciation:
Before the Covid-19 Pandemic, Kashara Bell from Prairie View A&M University’s Cooperative Extension Program implemented educational workshops at Faith Christian Academy in Wharton, TX. Through these workshops, she and School Nurse Nancy Ondrias facilitate amazing opportunities for FCA students to try new foods, learn essential life skills, and compete in fun contests through the Family and Community Health (FCH) program.
A few years ago, the property next door to the Faith Christian Academy became vacant. With increasing enrollment and the desire to add life skills, homemaking, and technical education courses for the school, the Board of Directors moved forward on the purchase. Homemaking classes topped our list and have allowed us to instill financial management, nutrition, essential skills, and many other needed life skills. The house is equipped with a full kitchen and other spaces for sewing, physical activity, and other subjects. I’m sure Mrs. Bell enjoys not having to bring her wagon full of kitchen supplies to teach our students. We are blessed to have Mrs. Bell work with our 2nd-12th graders every week. She leads with enthusiasm, joy, and a real desire to see our students excel in these areas. We are thankful to have Mrs. Kashara Bell on our campus!
