The Enterprise Elementary has been working on updating their playground for a while and principal Luke Rowley decided it was time to make this happen. “We need something for our kids and I will do whatever it takes to get the money”, Rowley said. He loves his job and wants to make sure these kids have a safe place to be and play.
Rowley approached the Washington County School district to help match funds the school has been saving, he went door to door in the community and made several phone calls in order to make their playground happen. A large donation came from the Hall family that will go towards more equipment to come later this month. With the hustle of Rowley and the the help from others, the school was able to purchase a large playground set up with new pieces to come.
Today was a special day as Rowley and the teachers from Enterprise stood each holding the large red ribbon that was between the kids and the playground. The Mayor of Enterprise Lee Bracken was also there to represent the City of Enterprise and the contribution they have made. Mayor Bracken and Principal Rowley each took the large red Scissors and held them to the ribbon as the kids chanted “cut it, cut it”. Mayor Bracken said “I have never seen anything like this, it was great”. The ribbon was cut and the kids erupted with a loud cheer.
The playground is officially opened for the elementary kids and for the community. It is a great day to be in Enterprise as the community continues to see growth all around from a new fire station to a splash pad.
