Kirk Denny designed outdoor classroom at Antioch Elementary

Kirk Denny, senior and Eagle Scout candidate, standing in the outdoor classroom at Antioch Elementary.

Eagle Scout candidate, Kirk Denny, selected Antioch Elementary as his project recipient.  Kirk, a senior at Weddington High School, designed an outdoor classroom, and on August 27th with the help of Boy Scout Troop 99, this wonderful addition to Antioch Elementary was completed.  Bordered on three sides by woods, the outdoor classroom is nestled in a beautiful, grassy meadow between Antioch and Brookhaven.  Classes have already started using the site, and soon benches will be added to seat 30 or more students.  To appreciate the work Kirk and Troop 99 did, you have got to visit it! Just follow the path from the parking lot to view this quiet, peaceful learning environment!
