Willow Park Christian School Receives $1.1 Million Gift

By Barbara Schwarz, NewsRadio 1080 KRLD

WILLOW PARK (CBSDFW.COM) – A Parker County private school got an amazing, out of the blue gift recently.

Trinity Christian Academy of the Parker County community of Willow Park, just west of Fort Worth, received the gift after a couple sat down with school administrator Marsha Barber.

KRLD’s Barbara Schwarz Reports:

Barber didn’t know the couple, but heard they had been asking questions about the facility.  Then they handed her a check for one million dollars.

“They never had children in our school or grandchilden. They seemed to get as much enjoyment out of it as I did.”

She then gave them a tour of the 450 student school and they handed her another check, this one for a hundred thousand dollars.

The money couldn’t have come at a better time for the school.  They are in the midst of a $6 million expansion project

    There are schools in many Texas neighborhoods that needed that money more. They are starting a 6 million dollar renovation, it just seems to me that the school is not in need of the money.

      Amen to that! If they can afford to start a $6M project, then they obviously had enough funding to begin with. That “gift” could have benefitted public schools in need to textbooks, etc. What a waste.

    Did ya’ll ever consider that they gave it to the school because it was a Christian school instead of a public school? Personally I thank them for the contribution and hope it helps to teach children the way I was taught…respect for God, Family & Country.

      I, too, was taught to respect God, Family and Country. I didn’t need to attend a private Christian school for that. I am a product of the Texas public school system. By contrast, I have several friends who attended Christian schools, and many of them have turned their backs on God, Family and Country. Respect for these comes from the home, not the school.
