Robert Blair's boarding school in the West End of Louisville

Kudos to Robert Blair (and to the C-J for interviewing him in their most recent "lunch with..." feature).

I got to know Robert a good bit through the beginnings of this project and a potential project that never got off the ground-- a Christian elementary school in the West End. I was on the pseudo-board that was wrestling with both projects. My greater interest was in the latter, but the former was intriguing as well.

Sadly, the bureaucratic hoops for refurbishing the building proved to be a prohibitively high hurdle for our project. But thankfully, Robert persevered in his smaller project and was able to get it off the ground two years ago.

May God continue to bless his vision and energy for some of this community's at-risk youth.

I have always liked Christian schools because these schools give same education as general boarding schools give. But in Christian schools, students learn under the religious influence and learn the principle of bible. So the concept of Christian schools is very beneficial to the teens.
