The Advance One Room School No. 7 is over 130 years old.
Imagine the initial renovations to the building and landscape, its furnishings and educational materials. Don't forget keeping up with repairs and stocks of items or paying monthly utilities and other bills. Volunteers need training and others create schedules and organize field trips, too.
All of it began with love and endures because of love.
It also requires money and labor.
The following are some of the generous supporters of the Advance School. We could not have done it without their help, nor could we continue to keep the project alive.
The Turner Foundation
|Through grants, two of the School's largest contributors,|
the Turner Foundation and the Springfield Foundation,
are represented with these two bricks that now have been hung
inside the front door to the Advance School.
The Della Selsor Trust
Richard and Ann Rice Family Trust Fund
The Springfield Foundation
Young Woman's Mission
The Clark County Retired Teachers Association
|For fifty dollars, CCRTA members and friends can purchase|
a brick with an engraved message or dedication
of their choosing.
|Engraved bricks create an apron in front|
of the flagpole toward the back of the
school and by the circular drive.
