Promoting a town, and a school

“This is about the town, this is about the school and this is about what we have,” Knapp said of his campaign, which already includes several banners on the downtown artery of Reid Avenue.

“We do a very good job here,” Knapp added.

Knapp said the next step in his vision is to enlist assistance from alumni who have gone out into the world and created something of themselves. The aim is to show that even a small-town school can provide a platform for big-time opportunities.

“We are going to reach out to graduates and see what they are doing,” Knapp said. “We want to show where our students are going on to and what they are doing with their lives, what they have done with the education that started here.”

Knapp said his short-term goal is to raise the profile of the school within the community.

“Our ultimate goal is to get more community involvement in the school,” Knapp said. “We are going to hang these posters any place we can hang them and get them visible.”

As the campaign notes, this maybe a small town, but its citizens include many with big aspirations.
