King’s Academy Names Renovated Library after Faithful Volunteer
A volunteer in the TKA library for almost 30 years, Beaumont’s family, friends, and more than 60 guests came together to honor her. TKA immediate past president Jeffrey Loveland (’75) spoke of Mrs. Beaumont’s impact on the school and her servant’s heart, while president Randal Martin spoke of her faithfulness.
“The King’s Academy is a better place because of Mrs. Beaumont’s faithful service, so I am pleased TKA’s Board of Governors has made certain that students, for years to come, will know her name,” said Martin.
Beaumont began her career at Columbia University as a trained nurse before finding her passion for library sciences. She spent 27 years in the public library system before retiring and beginning her volunteer work at The King’s Academy.
The Library was remodeled over the summer, adding a college-style table and chairs, display monitors and Promethean monitors, and a learning center called “The Cube.” The “Cube” is the Library’s Conference and Collaboration Center. Users can take advantage of a large Promethean board for presentations. It also features seating for up to 50 students in comfortable sofas and arm chairs which can be moved into a number of configurations. The space is completely enclosed, which makes it sound proof to the rest of the library.
The King’s Academy is a nationally recognized private Christian school serving approximately 1,200 students from preschool through twelfth grade and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the Association of Christian Schools International, and the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools. The King’s Academy serves students and their families across Palm Beach and Hendry Counties at its main campus at Belvedere Road and Sansbury’s Way in West Palm Beach, its Clewiston campus on Caribbean Avenue, and its satellite preschool campuses in Greenacres, Palm Beach Gardens, and Royal Palm Beach.
