THE SCHOOL BEGINS
Houma opened a new school for the 1978-1979 school year (Williams, 1978). In the summer of 1981 construction began on a new school building and gymnasium complex, giving the students such a wonderful place to study and play. The building housed two classrooms, restrooms, shower, and a nice kitchen. There was a community service area upstairs. Church members and school children could enjoy skating, basketball and other recreational activities in the gymnasium. The building was an added blessing because it was also used for socials, fellowship dinners, cooking schools, and many other functions (Hall, 1982). The school closed for a time and reopened for the 1994-1995 school year (Minutes, 1994).
