In a community project conducted in cooperation with and in support of the Wellston Main Street banners project, the Wellston High School (WHS) National Honor Society conducted a fundraising campaign to purchase a Wellston Golden Rocket banner.
This banner will supplement and complement Main Street's community banners, which have been on display since late last year in the historic downtown section of the city. With the help of donations from Adena Health System and local businessman Jason Holzapfel, who owns The Store, the project reached fruition this past Thursday afternoon when the new Golden Rocket banners were hung on poles in Monument Square on Broadway Street.
Identical banners have been secured for Golden Rocket Drive, the access road for the high school and middle school. These banners will hopefully be hung sometime next week prior to the WHS graduation and WHS Alumni events set for next weekend. The school banners will be displayed on Monument Square only when major school-related events are taking place.
Also, the fund drive will continue so more school banners can be purchased to fill out Golden Rocket Drive. The cost to sponsor a banner will be $300 and sponsors will be recognized on the banners with an attached tag. Those interested should contact WHS National Honor Society Advisor Sarah Gray-Hammond.
