“As a businessman, the projects we work on are my greatest accomplishments, but as a father, my children are my greatest creation,” said Ben Pogue, President and CEO at Pogue Construction. “I am so happy to be able to combine my work with my children. It's a unique opportunity to be able to expand Legacy Christian Academy while thinking that my children will be walking down the halls I built someday.” 

Legacy Christian Academy – Upper School Phase II project will add to an existing upper school facility and includes renovations to existing portions of the building to convert an office area to a kitchen and an art classroom into a science classroom.  

“Every so often my kids will ask about the progress on their school,” said Pogue. “I don’t get too technical but they’ve seen the renderings of what it will look like when it is completed.  I enjoy sharing this with them.”

The groundbreaking for the school’s expansion was held in mid-September. The project is expected to be completed by January 2017.
