This morning we held a beam signing ceremony for all of the early donors to our consolidation/expansion project. The ceremony marks an important milestone in our project, as this weekend we will be installing the last beams for the superstructure.
The signed beam will be placed above center court, in our new middle school regulation size gymnasium. Our boys and teachers are also signing one of the final beams, and their names will forever be embedded into the bones of our great school.
Board Chair Daniel Connolly '77 noted that we are celebrating our future through a project whose vision began 45 years ago when Graham House was purchased by the school. Dan and the entire board of trustees at Saint David's have played a remarkable role throughout the planning and construction process of this project.
As I said in my remarks to those present, Saint David's is fortunate to have an outstanding faculty who care deeply about our boys, and this project is really about fulfilling the potential of our teachers and boys.
"Whatever good we build, builds us," goes an old adage. That's what we are doing here, as we realize Saint David's School to meet the demands of this millennium.
