BRISTOL, Va. — A long-time dream was realized Wednesday as officials of Morrison School cut the ribbon to formally open their new $2.2 million, 20,000-square-foot facility.
Located at 200 North Pinecrest Lane, the school serves special needs children in grades one-12. About 100 people attended a sun-drenched ribbon-cutting ceremony and an open house. Founder Sharon Morrison said she was humbled and grateful for the support to build the new school. "We have a future. Morrison School can move forward, we can offer services we haven’t been able to offer in our smaller facility,” Morrison said after the ceremony. “We’ll be adding a pre-school to help younger children. I’m just so thankful to Jim and Fran [McGlothlin] because they believed in this cause and are willing to support it.”
