    My school is Swift Creek Elementary School in Whitakers North Carolina. My mom attended this school in the 60's and it is still standing and in operation.

    My daughter attended SCE for her 5th grade year. It was a wonderful experience and the principal (M. Kannan) was outstanding. Ms. Kannan has now been moved to Englewood Elementary - lucky them!!!
