On October 29, board members of the BR Chamberlain Foundation for Public Enrichment, members of the Tri-County Airport Authority, and the administrative leadership from The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville joined together for a groundbreaking ceremony held at the Tri-County Airport.

"This day represents a great deal of hard work and goodwill on the part of all the parties involved," stated BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen. "We are anticipating the day when we will see all of the facilities completed, and work being carried out to honor our Lord and strengthen our community."

The event marked a milestone in a multi-year program to bring further development to the Tri-County Airport centrally located in the Tri-Cities of Chipley, Bonifay and Graceville. It was also a significant start in the ongoing partnership between the Tri-County Airport and The Baptist College of Florida. The overall project will encompass BCF's Mission Aviation Center as well as the Chamberlain Foundation headquarters located in facilities leased from the college.
