An old African saying states “that it takes a village to raise a child”. At George Washington Carver, we realize the impact of this saying. We would like to modify this saying from an educational standpoint: It may take a village to raise a child, but “it takes a hardworking, cooperative and inclusive staff and faculty to develop a well-rounded productive member of our society”.
