28 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 8 - Nov. 14, 2002 New Christian high school gets boost from the community A new private high school scheduled to open in Sussex County next year received a sig- nificant endorsement from the community it will serve. Over 325 business and community leaders and area citizens attended a ban- quet recently held in Georgetown to promote the new Delmarva Christian High School. Through- out the course of the evening over $770,000 was raised in contribu- tions and pledges. The banquet was held at the Sussex County CHEER Center, just a stone's throw from the site where the new high school is un- der construction on Airport Road. Guest speaker for the banquet was Deanna McClary, wife of Vietnam veteran Clebe McClary. Clebe McClary was originally scheduled to be the guest speaker, however he recently suffered an accident that resulted in both an- kles being broken. McClary has been hailed a "military hero," and was awarded the Purple Heart af- ter having his left arm severed and his left eye blown out in a grenade attack. In the years following his re- lease from the military, McClary has dedicated his life to touring the country with a message of Christian faith and determination. McClary's wife Deanna deliv- ered the keynote address for the Delmarva Christian High School "Setting the Standard" banquet in her husband's absence, assuring the audience that he plans to visit Sussex County once recovering from his injuries. Deanna McClary told the story of how she met her husband and the devastating change in their lives following his serious injuries in Vietnam. She immediately became his "helping hands." She has now dedicated her life to her husband's rehabilitation, helping him with tasks that prior to his injuries would have been considered sim- ple, such as buttoning his shirt and tying his shoelaces. She spoke about the importance of being a true partner in the mar- riage setting. "Marriage is more than finding the right person. It's being and becoming the right per- son," she said. "In this age of quick fixes, speedy divorces and instant answers to life's most dif- ficult questions, it is the tough choice, the careful solution, the lengthy, agonizing struggle that produces the most beautiful re- suits." McClary said she is excited about what the Delmarva Christ- ian High School will do for youth and families in the area and she and her husband plan to visit the school in the near future. In his remarks to the banquet audience, DCHS principal W. Scott Kemerling said he believes "the time is right" for a Christian High School in the greater Sussex County area. "I am sure you will agree with me that the time is right for a Christ-centered high school in our region. This school will become a reality because God's hand is guiding the many men and women who are part of this endeavor," he said. "For three years the Board of Directors has prayerfully labored to follow the vision put before them by God. They have done so in a spirit of real Christian unity. In the past three months, they have brought together a team of dedicated professionals to build the necessary infrastructure of a truly first-class high school." Kemerling said the same Christ- like qualities of unconditional love, steadfastness and sacrifice, demonstrated by Clebe and Dean- na McClary as they have worked together to deal with Clebe's trau- matic ordeal, are the same quali- ties that will be modeled and taught at the Delmarva Christian High School. The DCHS Capital Campaign has raised over $3.56 million of the $5.5 million needed to build the new high school and open its r i mmm i i 1 1 1 1  I 1 I I 1 i I I 1 II 5 years in Rehoboth s *l at RMA Amoco, 191o Rockville Pike I Rockville, Maryland [ I 301-881,866 , I I :i', i i! .::ii I , ,, ! ........... il :': ....... m ' IT'S $HOWTIME! i 'i Inside and out car cleaning. :: 30% 0FF i' |[ Handwash, vaccuum, claan ii :I dash, windows, etc. Reg. $25.

A recent contribution by a local donor, who has asked to remain anonymous, has provided a match for every dollar raised by the project through Dec. 31, 2002, up to $1 million. The donor has also agreed o match total contribu- tions made through a three-year pledge as long as the first install- ment is made before the end of the year. "Setting the Standard" banquet coordinator Nicole Theis said it is exciting to see such a broad-based community support for the new Christian high school. "It was so wonderful to see the turnout for this banquet. There were spiritual and political leaders, business professionals and working-class people all out to support the high school project," she said. "There is no doubt that this school is something that is needed and wanted in our area." Kemerling said the new private high school would operate in a way that will make it accountable to the many supporters, as well as parents and students.
