ELWA is a hive of activity these days, as Ebola has faded into the background. The new hospital complex is nearing completion, the new studio building continues construction, and many buildings desperately need renovation, due to the effects of time and salt air. With so many projects needed, what is also needed is staff. ELWA Academy has opened a 10th grade class, and is looking forward to building a high school building to add 11th and 12th grades.
The good news is that the Alan and Cherie Shea are returning on February 11th, and Alan's technical expertise will be quickly put to use. Randy and Mary Anna Wingenroth are flying out February 2, and Randy will take over as Construction Manager. February 6, Steve and Carol Kejr are returning as well. Steve will be working with Alan and a team from Kansas to overhaul one of the generators.
