Larchmont School and Ocean View Elementary receive financial gift
Larchmont School and Ocean View Elementary received a financial gift when S.B Ballard Construction Co presented each school with a $15,000 check during the opening of their new schools.
The check presentation was made during the Welcome Back Luncheon for Teachers/Faculty/Staff. The donation was made possible by the generous donation of Stephen B. Ballard and his wife, BJ.
Mr. Fifer (Larchmont) and Mr. Peterson (Ocean View) accepted the checks on behalf of their respective school.
"We salute the teachers and administrators of Norfolk Public Schools for their commitment to the students," said Mr. Ballard. "My family and employees are proud to stand with them in support of the education they provide the children and we look forward to our continued partnership."
This is the 4th time S.B. Ballard has made a donation to the school system in in the last two years. Last year, at the opening of The Southside STEM Academy at Campostella and Richard Bowling Elementary School, the Ballard family presented each school with a $15,000 check. As part of the "Building the Future: School Construction for 21st Century Learning Environments" program, the school has received a total of $60,000 from S.B. Ballard Construction Co.
