The Leading Edge Academy charter school hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday to inaugurate the newest wing of their Maricopa campus.

In attendance were representatives from city and state governments and the nearby Ak-Chin Indian Community. State Sen. Steve Smith and Maricopa Vice Mayor Marvin Brown spoke at the event, each voicing their admiration for the academy’s success and underpinning the growth of charter schools.

Smith asserted pride in the state’s education policy and its role in promoting attendance at charter schools like Leading Edge.

“Arizona is No. 1 in the nation in school choice,” Smith Said. “So if you’re a parent you vote with your feet, you vote with your dollars.”

Brown also spoke of the potential fiscal backwash of education, citing conversations with developers and businesses where, along with inquires about population and infrastructure, education was of paramount concern.

“We brag and we brag mightily of our charter schools, and this school [Leading Edge Academy] especially,” Brown said.

The newly constructed 28,500-square-foot multi-story addition at 18700 N. Porter Road provides students with a full-size gymnasium and 18 new classrooms nearly doubling the school’s size.

Despite operating in the area for nearly two years, Oxi-Fresh officially became part of the Maricopa community during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Maricopa Chamber of Commerce Thursday night.

Currently, local Oxi-Fresh chain owner David Knapp services homes ranging from Mesa to Sun City West. He and his son-in-law David Wedel have been serving the residents of Maricopa for nearly two years. However, since Wedel has relocated to the area and Knapp would like to expand Oxi-Fresh’s presence in the city, the time was right.

Knapp got involved with Oxi-Fresh because it provided a “point of distinction” to separate itself from other products. His business steadily grew through Mesa and the West Valley, but he turned his eyes to Maricopa when he saw a lack of competitors in the area.

“There are several points of distinction that our carpet cleaning system sets itself apart, particularly in Arizona,” Knapp said.

The Oxi-Fresh carpet cleaning system uses less water than most carpet cleaners, so the area affected by the products tends to dry faster. Knapp sees that as a significant advantage in the Arizona markets. The products used by Oxi-Fresh are also considered to be “green” by Environmental Protection Agency standards, so his cleaning system does go along with Maricopa’s desire to be environmentally friendly.

“Our whole system has the EPA seal of being all green,” Knapp said. “So those are some of the distinctions I saw here with this particular product, as well as the customer service.”

Currently, Knapp operates his business with his son and son-in-law. The business has four working trucks, and Knapp’s hope is to expand to the point of needing all four operating at the same time.
