Cindy Whisman and the students of St. Clair High School are raising funds for a project they have named, “The Legacy Project”. The project is designed to allow students to leave behind their “legacy” after graduation. Students will mark their legacy at SCHS by painting a rock at the end of their senior year. The rocks will then be placed into a structure, that was designed by a SCHS student. The area designated for this structure, is located on the SCHS school grounds, in front of the counseling offices. The goal of the project is to increase student’s ownership to their school and community, and ultimately to develop a togetherness within the graduating class as they begin the next chapter of their lives.
Dependent upon funding, the project is scheduled to begin spring of 2019. The project has gained support from the student body, teachers, counselors, the principal and parents of St. Clair High School. BMJ Engineers & Surveyors, Inc. has also shown their support with Senior Project Engineer, Michael W. Quaine, P.E. lending his services to aid in the calculation of the size of aluminum plate that is needed to stabilize and hold the structure. He also prepared a dimensional sketch illustrating the design. The St. Clair Woman’s League, which president Carolyn R. Hunter, P.S. is involved with, has supported the project with a monetary contribution.
“The Legacy Project’s focus is on the beautification and connectedness of SCHS”, said Cindy Whisman. Her goal is to beautify the school grounds and provide a new tradition for all the seniors to come. She hopes that when they are older and have families of their own, they will circle back to see their “legacy” as it continues to stand at St. Clair High School.
