Date Established: November 1, 2018
Through the generosity of Eleni and Wolfgang Gagon, Ocean View Christian Academy (OVCA) in San Diego opened their new Think Big Reading Room on November 1. The Think Big Reading Room at OVCA is equipped with multiple seating options and hundreds of books that appeal to a variety of ages. After the room’s unveiling, students found themselves thumbing through a robust book selection in the uniquely decorated ocean-themed reading space. The Reading Room Team at OVCA transformed a section of their existing library into a brand new reading space that is sure to be a popular place on campus. The day’s events were kicked off in the school’s pristine chapel where Principal Johnson addressed the audience about the school’s mission to further encourage leisure reading and how the Gagon Trust and CSF made it all possible. Student writers, each representing their respective grade, shared a few paragraphs on how reading has shaped them into the high achieving student that they are. This is the eighth reading room to be sponsored by the Gagon Trust and the 11th to open in Southern California.
