HOWE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Howe Military Academy will indeed stay open according to a statement released by the school.
The statement reads as follows:
June 2, 2014
The Howe Military Academy's Board of Trustees has decided that the 130-year-old private school will remain open to welcome new and re-enrolling students for the 2014-2015 academic year and expect to remain open for continued operations.
At its meeting of June 2, 2014, the Board found that projected enrollment and re-enrollment figures justified the school's continuing operation. A purposed plan which provided financial and administrative reforms coupled with a generous donation by an alumnus was another crucial factor in deciding to keep the historic school open.
Col. George Douglass, Howe Military Academy's acting Superintendent, noted that the school's faculty, staff, parents, guardians, and students can now proceed with their plans for the coming academic year free from uncertainty about the Academy's future.
