Cayce SC Brookland Cayce High School Dedicates New Facilities

I recently attended a Dedication Ceremony at Brookland-Cayce High School. The overcast skies and cool temperatures on the morning of the event were a welcome relief from the 90 degree heat just a day earlier. The quick, sharp cadence from the Brookland-Cayce High School Band’s drum line signaled that the ceremony was about to begin.

 

The location of the event was the brand new outdoor courtyard that lies between the two new facilities: the subjects of the dedication. The cafeteria on the left side of the courtyard features a gleaming stainless steel kitchen, large student dining area, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The interior of the cafeteria is bright and inviting with plenty of natural light. The fine arts building sits directly opposite the cafeteria and forms the right hand border of the courtyard.  The fine arts building features state-of-the-art rooms that are home to the BC High School Band, Chorus, and Strings.

 

The Brookland-Cayce High School Band under the direction of Mr. Dale Hair played several selections immediately preceding the official opening of the ceremony by the student body president, Mallie Baker. The quality and precision of the selections sounded as if the band had been performing them all year rather than just the last couple of months.

 

The Presentation of Colors for the national anthem was by the JROTC under the direction of Maj. Mark Cannady (U.S. Ret).  Mr. Scott Newman, BC’s principal, Dr. Venus Holland, District Superintendent, and Mr. Rick Shull, Board Chairman all gave short speeches during the ceremony. The Brookland-Cayce Chorus, Band, and Strings performed between the speeches.

 

The Chorus, under the direction of Ms. Wendy Humphries, and the Strings, under the direction of Mr. Andrew Preston, gave equally impressive performances. To see so many talented students involved in the diverse musical programs offered was an encouraging sign. Study after study show the direct correlation between academic performance and the arts.

 

It is evident that the schools commitment to the arts is going to be a good investment for many years to come. Brookland-Cayce has a 78-year history of changing and adapting to the times and needs of her students. This is the next chapter in that long, successful story.
