School, Relationships, and the Delight Community

(p.48) Chapter Four Where the Heart Is
Why Rural Schools Matter

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter describes a school in Delight which was founded in 1903. To the community of Delight, the rural school is a space where people gather. It acts as an animated and dynamic area. School-related extracurricular activities bring people to the school, as parents, relatives, and friends gather to support their children in school plays and festivals. For such a small town, there is quite a lively atmosphere seen at the school. Without the school, the community would lose its recreational and communal center.

Keywords:   Delight school, rural school, extracurricular activities, recreational standpoint, communal center
