The Chesapeake Center for Student Success (CCSS) was the beneficiary of a $3,000 donation from Calvary Revival Church, presented to CCSS principal, Nathan Brown. Pastor Clifford Hedgspeth, representing the church and his fellow church leaders Bishop Courtney McBath and Pastor David Osborne, visited CCSS on September 30, 2020. Principal Brown conducted a tour of the school for the visitors and was joined by faculty and staff members.
Principal Brown shared plans to use the funds for the purchase of technology equipment to facilitate health and safety practices during arrival and dismissal times. Some funds will be used to purchase faculty t-shirts featuring the school’s new logo, additional equipment to support their physical education program, and prizes for the school’s student academic and behavioral incentive program.
CCSS serves middle and high school students across the district, making it difficult for the school to raise funds traditionally through PTSA and community partnerships. The donation from Calvary Revival will enable the school to meet current needs and support school projects while “engaging, empowering, and inspiring” students.
