“ELCA continues to be a special place in my heart. With five children attending ELCA, it’s a blessing to see the teachers pour into them day in and day out. Not only do they teach them about Jesus and help educate them, but they also participate in my children’s lives outside of school. The teachers come to their baseball games and football games on the weekends; they call and text when my children are sick. I just love the family atmosphere that my children get to experience, and that I experienced as a student myself.”

- Ashley Cash, ELCA Class of 2005 and mom of five current ELCA students
