“Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find...”  From sunny skies to God’s inspiration and provision throughout the construction of the Clarence T.C. Ching Educational Center, the KCC/KCS ‘ohana praised God with this powerful refrain. 

Clarence T.C. Ching Foundation Trustees, invited guests, and many other integral individuals to this project gathered this morning to celebrate the completion of the facility, designed with the mission of “educating each child to his/her God-intended potential.”

Trustee Robert Fujioka spoke on behalf of the Foundation, sharing a brief biography of Clarence T.C. Ching and the vision of his remarkable foundation.  The foundation funded $1.5 million toward the center, which has proven to be an incredible gift to KCS and the community. Principal Mark Gallagher acknowledged the First Hawaiian Bank and Atherton Foundations for their key gifts as well.  

Mr. Gallagher also shared how God was at work decades before in connecting the Ching Foundation with KCC/KCS.  The result of that connection is realized today as students now fill the Clarence T.C. Ching Educational Center with the sweet sounds of music, laughter, and excitement for learning.  

Just another reason to praise God for His goodness!
