WORTHINGTON — Students, teachers, staff and family members gathered on the lawn of R.H. Conwell Elementary School in Worthington on Wednesday afternoon to watch the unveiling of the school’s first official sign.
Since the school was re-opened as a public school five years ago, it has not had a sign. Thanks to funding from the Parent-Teacher Organization, a sparkling white sign with forest green lettering now announces the presence of the R.H. Conwell Elementary School and the Worthington School District.
Former Rep. Steve Kulik, of Worthington, attended the unveiling and said that the sign was like icing on a cake; an acknowledgment of the school taking its “proper place in the community.”
“The sign completes the package,” Kulik said. “It is a great testimony to what the community did to win back their school from oblivion.”
