On Tuesday, August 22nd Lantz’s Chief Preconstruction Officer Jeff Deavers was one of dozens of community members to welcome Broadway High School students back to school. Parents, school board members and local business leaders held signs with motivational phrases as they lined the school’s entryway at 7:30 AM to greet and encourage the students. Participants in this second annual Community Welcome also signed a large poster that will be on display in the school as a daily reminder of the community’s support. Jennifer “Jen” Knick, a BHS English teacher, is the force behind the event, which was covered by WHSV TV3 and the Daily News Record. This unified, positive display is designed to show students that their community cares and hopefully inspire the business leaders of tomorrow.
