Mobile, AL - This summer, Alba Middle School focused on community outreach through a partnership with two local churches. During four days in July, Alba Middle School became the home of a community eye clinic where more than 500 eye exams were made and 340 prescription eye glasses were provided to those in need.
During this 4-day event, Alba Middle opened its doors to First Baptist Bayou La Batre and Ridgecrest Baptist Church for the eye glass clinic. The church pastors wrote, "We felt welcomed from the time we set foot on [the] campus... The partnership with Alba Middle and our community was positive on every level. I recall many of our patients in the clinic commenting on how nice it was to be back on campus, many of these patients graduated from Alba years ago."
"Any amount of success in education and ministry requires engaging the community through healthy relationships."
