THE ‘’MEDIA CENTER,’ formerly known as the school library, within the new Paris Cooperative High School now under construction on the north side of the west lake, will be one of the most advanced and attractive for students, thanks to a major enhancement provided by a $10,000 donation from the Edgar County Bank & Trust of Paris to develop an outdoor patio, accessible from the interior space. This patio, available as weather permits, will also provide a free wifi service. The donation was accepted by the Edgar County Community Foundation for its school enhancement account by Foundation development manager Warren Sperry, left, and director Ned Jenison, presented by Janelle Adams, Director of Administrative Services at the bank, and bank president Eric Volkmann.
