Originally, we had planned to call the new school, American Academy of Excellence. However, we found that name was taken so we decided on, applied for and were granted the name, BCI Academy. According to Ethiopian rules, we had to publish the name for four weeks which was completed last week and we officially have our new name: BCI ACADEMY.
As we continue to move forward with the BCI Academy, slowly but surely the world is building up around us. When we first started construction on the school, there were no houses or buildings around, let alone a road! But now, we are being surrounded by construction of soon-to-be homes and businesses. The government is also preparing to put a new road in. What is now piles of dirt, will soon be a new road!
Its great to see and be a part of all this progress, the growth of a community.
