• CGCSC Student & Staff Memorial  

    A memorial to the students and staff who lost their lives while enrolled or working in the Center Grove Community School Corporation stands on the grounds of the Education Service Center, located at 4800 West Stones Crossing Road, Greenwood. 


    About the Memorial
    Richard Arkanoff, II

    The memorial was designed and constructed under the leadership of Richard “Richie” Arkanoff II, a member of the Center Grove Boy Scout Troop 245 and a Center Grove High School student, as an Eagle Scout Project. Arkanoff presented his idea to the CGCSC Board of School Trustees at their February 2017 meeting, as a way to bring together memorials scattered around the district in a centralized location. The memorial was designed to be self-sustainable with low upkeep cost, while being meaningful for the families and friends of individuals. Arkanoff obtained materials for the memorial through donations of design, materials and funds. He exceeded his goal of $3000 by $170.

    "When I started my Eagle Project, my biggest goal was to create something that would have a sustained and meaningful impact to my entire community, something that would help others and remain as a consistent reminder of those who have been lost. 

    I am humbled by the fact that this project means so much to their families and helps the community reflect on the moments they had with those that are no longer with us. I am so honored to have completed an Eagle Project with the help of so many that will have a lasting impact on a countless number of people in the community."
