Hamilton Center’s Spectrum Services Partners with West Vigo High School Students
Hamilton Centers’ Spectrum Services have benefited from hard work from several West Vigo High School Technology Students. Approximately three years ago, Spectrum was awarded a Wabash Valley Community Foundation grant to further develop their courtyard which is enjoyed by the clients they serve. Half of the money was used to purchase benches, picnic tables and gliders for the area. The other half was reserved for a shelter structure where clients could go to a shady place to eat or enjoy recreational activities.
Although the materials for the project were purchased through the Wabash Valley Community Foundation Grant, the students of the West Vigo High School Technology class donated their time by designing and building a pergola which will eventually be covered with vines. The students spent several days completing the project. In addition, local members of the community have donated plants, dirt and statuary, making this a true community project. “We look forward to enjoying the new pergola for years to come, and it’s extra special because of the community support we received to make it happen,” said Mary Ann Clark, Director of Hamilton Centers’ Spectrum Services.
