This year, St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School in Greenville is marking its 100th anniversary! Community members gathered to celebrate at centennial events on May 4 and 5.
St. Charles school first began educating students in 1919, operating in the home of the Slaght family, who were parishioners. Early in the school's history, it closed for a time, and it eventually reopened in a nearby convent. In 1956, classes moved into the current school building, which has since been expanded. All the while, Jesus Christ has remained the cornerstone of the students' educational experience, and generations have been blessed by a St. Charles education.
Congratulations to the St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School community on this exciting anniversary!
