Darlington County resident Dr. Richard Culyer has donated over 1,000 books from his own personal collection to Emmanuel Christian School, located at 1001 N. Marquis Hwy. In Hartsville.

The books were distributed between the library and individual classrooms in Emmanuel’s elementary, middle and high school classrooms.   He is an avid reader himself and passionate about students being able to access books, to be able to learn to read, and develop a love for reading and learning.  He has also individually read everyone of the 1000 books that he donated to Emmanuel Christian School. 

 “As a Christian and an educator and a Christian,” Dr. Culyer stated, “I have been impressed by Emmanuel Christian School’s strong academic curriculum and its related emphasis on Christian education.  Likewise, I have also been impressed by the excellent leadership of Headmaster Clark Ballard. “ He continued, “As a result, I decided to contribute, from my personal library, over one thousand books that were chosen, title by title, to the school.  The books range from kindergarten level through high school in a number of subject areas. I am convinced that Emmanuel Christian School will put them to good use in conjunction with the other excellent resources of the school.” CONTRIBUTED PHOTO
