They represent, in name and spirit, the four academic buildings on campus. The men honored were Gus Bell, Chip Compton (representing his father Charles Compton), Herb Skinner and Neil Johnson.
Gus Bell is one of two original founders of the school. He has served in every possible leadership role for the school. The middle school and administrative offices are home to Bell Hall.
Charles Compton is the other founding father of St. Andrew's. Mr. Compton assisted with the task of purchasing the property on Wilmington Island and raising the funds and in-kind services needed to build Compton Hall which is home to the private school's middle and upper school gym.
Neil Johnson has been involved with St. Andrew's since 1985 when his daughter enrolled in the very first Pre-K4 class. As a volunteer, Johnson has served on the Board of Trustees, co-chaired the most recent capital campaign for the school and currently serves on the Board of Visitors. The Neil C. Johnson Early Childhood Center is home to our youngest students in Pre-K3 through Grade 4.
At St. Andrew's School, Herb Skinner has served as Finance Chair, Board Chair and is now part of the private school's Board of Visitors. In the mid 80's, he spear-headed fund raising efforts for a third building on campus. In the fall of 1986, Skinner Hall reached its full potential as home to a new cafeteria, science labs, an art studio and additional classrooms.
