We recently completed the renovation of room 701 as an example of the vision for all of the barracks rooms in Cosby Hall. Not only was the room painted but a new closet was built, a new sink and vanity installed and new modern furniture was placed in the room.

"It reminds me a lot of my college. They were always building or updating something", said Andrew Erickson.
Andrew is excited to be a part of such a great school and is ready for the tasks ahead.
He is no stranger to military boarding schools. Andrew is a 1998 graduate of Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington Missouri, where he attended for high school and junior college.

Andrew never expected to return to boarding schools but after he and his wife had begun their family, Andrew rediscovered the magic of what a school like Hargrave can do for a young man.
