Where: Greenville, SC
What: Hidden Treasure Christian School seeks to provide special education instruction to children with mental, physical, emotional, developmental and learning disabilities in a safe and nurturing environment.
Why: In 1978, a tragic accident left Becky Vaughan, the daughter of John Vaughn, the eventual founder of Hidden Treasure, severely burned. She miraculously survived the fire but was left with physical disabilities. Once Becky was of age, her father began to search for a school that would be able to tend to her special physical needs, as well as her academic and spiritual needs. However, he struggled to find a school in his community that could properly serve all of her needs. In order to fill that void, John founded Hidden Treasure Christian School.
How: The school’s programs are built specifically to serve students of varying ability levels. Teachers structure their lessons to instill confidence in the students, developing their ability to reach their potential and lead a fulfilling life. The program includes K5, elementary, middle and high school-aged students.
How FLOCK Supports:
Over the last several years, House of Raeford Farms FLOCK has supported a number of Hidden Treasure Christian School’s community events. FLOCK currently sponsors the Fall Festival and the Hidden Treasure Kids’ Classic Golf Tournament and hopes to build upon the partnership in years to come.
“The events are essential for building awareness of Hidden Treasure in the community and educating people about the services we provide. They also allow our students to engage in fun experiences in which they otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to participate. We’re extremely appreciative of FLOCK’s continued support of our organization,” said Kerry Baggett, Development Director. FLOCK’s involvement with Hidden Treasure is just a part of our greater support for education and youth in the Greenville community.
