CLARKSVILLE, IN (August 25, 2021) – Students and teachers at Clarksville’s Parkwood Elementary School are starting the new school year with a brand new look. The 50-year-old sign that once stood at the entrance to the school building is gone, and in it’s place is a brand new sign. School officials say the sign was a welcome change, and goes well with recent updates made to the front of the school.
The new sign was donated by Clarksville Town Councilman Michael Mustain (District 4), whose wife once attended the school. The new sign was designed and made for the school by Shane Bassett of Bassett Signs & Woodworking, and was installed just a few weeks ago. A special dedication ceremony was held Wednesday afternoon. Greater Clark County Schools Superintendent Mark Laughner was on hand for the event, and says Parkwood and GCCS appreciates the donation and all the support the community provides to local kids.
As for the old Parkwood sign, school Principal Brandon Winebrenner says it is currently being preserved. Once work on the sign is finished, it will be displayed prominently inside the school building for future generations to enjoy.
