A Lighthouse in the Mountains
Fundraising efforts were established where businesses and individuals can purchase stair step plaques, with 100% of the net proceeds offsetting the cost of steel material for the students to work with. Essentially, folks have the opportunity to become part of history in the making, as we will acknowledge their contribution with an engraved stainless steel plaque on the riser of “their” stairstep recognizing their family and loved ones or advertise their business. As there are only 122 steps to the top, don’t delay in securing a gift that will last beyond a lifetime for that certain lighthouse enthusiast in your life. We still have a few available! Summersville Lake Retreat has established, contributed to and distributed scholarships to the top graduating seniors as selected by their respective instructors upon graduation in June 2012, and have a continued working relationship with this year’s graduating classes, during which time the Building Trades classes will be designing the surrounding landscaping, incorporating a picnic pavilion at the base of the lighthouse that will be constructed in the Spring of 2013.
