A Memorable Milestone: Gilbert Christian School and Willmeng Celebrate Future Elementary School Expansion


The sense of community and the excitement of new beginnings was palpable as Willmeng joined forces with Gilbert Christian Schools for a momentous event. Students, teachers, and parents gathered for a unique celebration, leaving an indelible mark on the future K-8 elementary school. The signing of the school’s framing and the heartfelt messages on its courtyard walls marked a significant milestone in the construction project. With the collaboration of Gilbert Christian Schools and the esteemed architect MRT Design, the event was truly a testament to the commitment of all involved.  

The event’s highlight was the collective signing of the framing of the new elementary school, a symbol of progress and growth. The event brought together community members, students, teachers, and parents who etched their names, well wishes, and prayers onto the framing structure. This was a symbol of the shared commitment to the school’s success.  

 The community’s youngest members were not left out of this joyous celebration. As a token of remembrance, Willmeng gave them coloring pages featuring renderings of the future school. These pages allowed them to bring their imagination to life while commemorating this special day. By engaging the little ones in this meaningful activity, the event fostered a sense of belonging and excitement for the school’s expansion.   

Willmeng sincerely appreciates Gilbert Christian Schools for the opportunity to be a part of this momentous occasion. The company is honored to contribute to constructing the K-8 elementary school, encompassing a classroom building and a gymnasium. The project at Gilbert Christian Schools’ Val Vista Campus is progressing steadily and is expected to be completed later this year. The continued collaboration with MRT Design, the architect behind the project, ensures this innovative and inspiring learning environment will become a reality.    

As the project nears completion, the anticipation grows for the transformative impact this state-of-the-art facility will have on the education of future generations. Willmeng is proud to have been part of this milestone and eagerly looks forward to witnessing the school’s growth and success in the years to come. 

 Willmeng has had the great privilege of working with Gilbert Christian Schools in the past on its Greenfield Campus and has been fortunate to continue that partnership this spring. Willmeng attended and sponsored the GCS Semi-Annual Golf Classic, and it was a pleasure to continue to foster our relationship with this community.
