C&T Design and Equipment Co. has been an enthusiastic supporter of The Oaks Academy for several years.
The Oaks Academy is an independent school, Pre-Kindergarten though 8th grade, where every child is capable of the duty and delight of learning. This is a school where relationships come first, where all are known and loved, and barriers resulting from racial and socioeconomic differences can be destroyed. To find out more about how The Oaks delivers a true education, please visit www.theoaksacademy.org.
Each spring C&T Design partners with the Oaks Academy on the Good Manners Luncheon. This event for the students helps to teach, encourage and reinforce proper etiquette. We believe manners help children over the course of their entire lives. From college to career, good manners can help an individual turn their dreams into reality when they have first-hand references speaking to their character. Manners benefit society as a whole starting with the individual, and we are starting with the bright individuals at The Oaks Academy.
We firmly believe in The Oaks Academy's mission and look forward to many years in partnership.
