Pellston Public Schools – Raising the Curtain on School Pride


A Community Foundation grant of $4,718 from the Youth Fund allowed for the final curtain to be purchased and installed in the Pellston High School auditorium.  The total project was over $15,000 and took two years to accomplish.  It also took the help of a couple other Community Foundation Funds – the Petoskey Rotary Park Fund and the Baiardi Family Foundation Fund.  The teacher who leads the drama club reports increased school pride and enthusiasm for performing in the space. “This was a really big project, which would have taken years to complete without the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation.”  The single most important outcome of this effort  is “the joy I see when kids are singing and dancing on the stage…I love the pride they take in the auditorium now.”
