LPA Teaches Responsibility and Civic Pride
In a developing relationship between the LeRoy Preparatory Academy (LPA), the LeRoy City Council, and Mayor Steve Dean, students at the LPA have developed a plan to become the primary caretakers of Howard Virgin park, adding some finishing touches to the scenic venue along the way. On a recent trip students were asked to brainstorm ways they could enhance their experience at the park. Among the ideas generated were building fire pits near the pavilions, repainting the posts lining the entrance as well as both pavilions, creating small covered structures to fish from, and clearing the paths near the lake and widening them. In addition, the students suggested GPS mapping of the trails, adding signage and creating a brochure promoting the location. The LPA will be working to gather donations, dedications, sponsorships and fundraisers for the project.
