West Salem Senior's Project Arrives at First Base
Article from Coulee News, written by Tobias Mann
West Salem High School senior Drew Tschumper’s senior exit project has reached first base.
Tschumper’s swing for the fences began last fall when he started his SEP project with the goal of giving the recently renovated Damian Miller Field entrance a facelift with a brick-and-aluminum archway.
His hope was to make the entrance to the field more welcoming for baseball fans filing into the stands.
To do this, Tschumper, with the help of the Friends of West Salem Baseball Association is selling bricks that will be used to construct the archway.
The bricks are available in three sizes at $150 for a small brick and $500 for a large brick.
Supporters can have their names, logos or brands inscribed in the bricks.
The goal is raise $11,000, the estimated cost to construct the archway.
In addition, Tschumper said he hopes to raise an additional $4,000 from the brick sales to cover the cost of a new wind screen for the field.
“I’m still really confident,” Tschumper said. “I’m a little nervous, but I choose not to think about it.”
