Band room donated to Liberty Junior School

LIBERTY TWP. - A band room at Liberty Junior School will be built at no cost to the Lakota Schools.

Tom and Jennifer Sharkey of West Chester have agreed to pay for and oversee construction of a 1,000-square-foot band room at the south end of the building, off the existing band room.

"They don't have the availability of resources to do this thing," Tom Sharkey said. "Our business (K&H Industries, LLC) has done very well. We're very fortunate in that. We believe in sharing your resources where you can."

Architectural firm Steed-Hammond-Paul Inc. is designing the addition at no cost to the district, said Mike Dingeldein, vice president. It will be soundproof, have a level - rather than tiered - floor, high ceilings, and casework for instrument storage.

If the district had built it, the project would cost $80,000 to $100,000. Sharkey hopes to build it for much less through donations of materials and labor. Already, Better Choice Heating &AC, Roofing Wholesale and Airstream Mechanical have joined the project.

To donate, call the Sharkeys at 921-6770.
