E. Blake Paul Presides Over All Saints’ Groundbreaking Ceremony

Written by: Peterson & Myers, P.A.

E. Blake Paul, as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of All Saints’ Academy, presided over the groundbreaking ceremony for All Saints’ Academy’s newest project, the Barnett Learning Commons, with parents and honored guests on Monday, June 6.  This $5 million building will provide an innovative environment that will encourage collaborative learning and foster creative thought and discussions.  The project is one of three initiatives identified to fulfill the goals set forth in the Boundless…Strategic Plan, which was unveiled by the school’s Board of Trustees in Spring 2009.

While construction takes place on the building, the school will continue to raise funds for endowments supporting Tuition Assistance and Faculty Compensation.  Together with the Barnett Learning Commons, these three projects are integral to help the school achieve the goals outlined by the Board of Trustees.

Mr. Paul was joined by Carol and Barney Barnett, Cindy Henry, Bruce Scamehorn, Loretta Sanders and ASA’s Interim Headmaster, Carolyn Baldwin.

All Saints’ Academy is an independent school for students in grades Pre-K3 through 12 and offers “boundless…” educational opportunities to families in Polk County.  Its mission is to challenge the minds, nourish the hearts and enrich the spirits of every student.  For more information, please visit
