The Floor on the Wall
“Preserving the Past and Planning the Future”. Part of the solid maple floor of the old 1921 gym has been restored and dominates the wall of the south lobby at Austin High School. Individuals and couples who donate $250 or more and organizations and businesses who donate $500 or more are recognized with a plate on the wall. The wall encompasses the names of many people who recall fondly their school experiences and wish to help preserve the tradition of quality education for future students.
It takes more than financial contributions to ensure the success of the APE Foundation’s mission – it takes people! We always welcome volunteers. Please let us know if you are interested in sharing your time and talents with us. Volunteers to help plan and work at events are always appreciated.
