JVS Students Raise Funds for Construction of 9/11 Memorial
February 9, 2012 --
Lorain County JVS Marketing and Management students are spearheading the fundraising effort for a September 11th memorial to be built on the grounds of the JVS.
The memorial will incorporate a steel beam recovered from the rubble of the twin towers that was given to the school in 2011.
Students are selling bricks that can be engraved with two lines of print. The bricks will be used in the memorial forming part of the walkway surrounding the beam.
Bricks are being sold for $100 each to individual donors. Corporate sponsors can purchase a brick for $500; their donation will also include a certificate. A $1,000 donation designates a donor as a Diamond Sponsor. A Diamond sponsorship includes a brick for walkway, a display brick for the sponsor and a certificate.
The students hope to raise enough funds to construct the memorial by September 11, 2012. JVS students from a variety of career-technical programs will help in the construction of the memorial.
