L to R, B-C-S School Board members Heather Dewitz, Kim Dusseau, and Jamie Tooman along with Carroll Township trustees Kenny Gyde, Rodney Biggert, and Donald St. Clair, met on April 2 to celebrate the sale of the former Carroll School property to the Carroll Township Trustees.
Schools are centerpieces of the communities in which they are located. Schools are not simply bricks and mortar that serve as spaces where young people are educated. Schools also serve as community centers, and help to shape the identity of the area in which they are located. Based on this belief, the Benton-Carroll-Salem Board of Education worked to ensure that Carroll School be put into responsible and community-minded hands when it made the decision to sell the building after it was closed at the end of the 2011-2012 school year.
