2023 Mayor’s Cup Recipient: American Renaissance School


The Statesville Community Appearance Commission has proudly announced American Renaissance School as the distinguished winner of the 2023 Mayor's Cup. This prestigious award, first bestowed in 1988 to the Walnut Street & Front Street Executive Offices, recognizes individuals or organizations that significantly enhance the visual and community spirit of Statesville. This year, the spotlight shines on a beacon of educational and architectural renewal.

Nestled in the heart of downtown Statesville, the American Renaissance School's campus is a blend of history and modernity, comprising four meticulously renovated historical buildings and one newly constructed facility. Together, these structures cover over 100,000 square feet and serve as a bustling hub of education and activity for over 800 students every weekday.

The transformative impact of the American Renaissance School on both the vitality and the aesthetic appeal of downtown Statesville cannot be overstated. Its presence has rejuvenated the area, combining educational aspirations with architectural preservation, thereby fostering a thriving community center that invites both admiration and inspiration.

The award was presented on May 6, 2024, at the City Council meeting by Mayor Costi Kutteh, marking a significant moment of recognition for the school's contributions. The awarding of the Mayor's Cup to the American Renaissance School serves as a testament to the school’s enduring commitment to education and community development. It stands as a proud reminder of the power of thoughtful restoration and community-focused initiatives in shaping the future of Statesville. Congratulations to all those associated with the American Renaissance School for achieving this esteemed accolade and for their ongoing dedication to the betterment of our community.
