When students, staff and visitors enter the east entrance art wing doors to the high school, they are greeted with a cheerful Wildcat ornament hanging from the ceiling. The ornament was donated by alumnus Kirk Brown. Mr. Brown used to enjoy decorating the halls as a student according to Ms. Peg McGinnis, and continues to give back to the school.
Mr. Brown, who has stayed involved with Owen J. Roberts School District by starting an Excellence in Horticulture scholarship, reached out to Horticulture teacher, Ms. McGinnis, with the idea to brighten the hallway and bring cheer to students. He had the ornament decoration custom made and donated it to the school. Mr. Brown was honored by the Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation in 2018 with the Distinguished Alumni Award and his generosity continues to be commended.
