Give Children A Choice fortuitously met B.L. Harbert’s Mr. Chuck Chandonnet, who initiated a project to not only donated a four-classroom addition to the school, but also trucked in 100 truckloads of dirt to raise and regrade the once swampy school grounds. Chuck was transferred to another project and was replaced by Mr. Nick Agnew to oversee the project completion.
