A building was rented on Comal Street and in the fall of 1981 classes opened “A lot of Christian schools began in the 80s,” said Wall. “That's kind of a boom time.” Over the years, enrollment in the school grew, and a bigger facility was built on Mission Hills Drive Today there are 315 students attending the school. These student come from New Braunfels, ( anyon Lake, San Marcos, Seguin, Garden Ridge, Cibolo, Schertz, Wimberly and Blanco. “We have 80 different churches represented here," said Wall ‘That’s because we’re an interdenominational and not tied to any one church.” On f riday, the NBC A will celebrate its beginning. Julie Salsman, director of development, said a special chapel service will be held at 8 30 a rn f riday, with Dennis Ciallahcr, pastor of the f reedom fellowship Church presiding. following the service, a new marquee sign will be dedicated in honor of the school’s anniversary. Students will then enjoy birthday cake in their classrooms. "We’d love to have anyone who wants to come,” said Salsman. But as the school celebrates its history, it is already making strides toward its future. Wall said the school will be expanded to include a ninth- and lOth-grade class for the 1997-98 school year. She said eventually, it will be expanded to a full high school. "As the high school grows, we will need further land and we perhaps may have other communities involved,” said Wall. "People in other communities have already said they’re interested in enrolling their children when we expand to include a high school.” Consolidation may come up for vote By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Comal County Commissioners will once again discuss the issue of consolidation of the county and district attorneys offices Thursday, and County Judge ( arter Casteel said there may be enough votes to approve it this time around.

Casteel said she has not talked with the commissioners about their stance on the issue However, she said, judging by comments made in various court sessions, the consolidation issue could be approved Thursday. "I believe consolidation can pass, and I'm hoping it can pass with a unanimous vote,” said Casteel "I know (a 5-0) vote is important ” lf the court votes to support consolidation, it will have to be approved by the Texas Legislature Casteel said this means the necessary draffs need to be in Austin and on the calendar before I cb 14 However, she said it is her understanding that the local representatives and senators want a 5-0 vote before they will support it. "To them, (a split vote) means my commissioners court is divided and that means the public is probably divided," said Casteel. The court will vote on the consolidation issue I hursday. Casteel said if it is approved, she will ask that the resolution reflect an effective date of Sept I. "I think ifs in our best interest to move forward,” said Casteel, "lf it passes on Thursday, they will probably begin to run the offices as consolidated, so a Sept. I effective date shouldn't be hard.” The court met for a full meeting on Monday, so Thursday’s meeting is a special meeting Consolidation will be discussed during the 9 a rn. meeting.
