Student Council Fountain
Restoration Underway

The Thomas Jefferson High School Historical Preservation Society is pleased to announce that the restoration of the Student Council fountain is finally under way thanks to the generous contributions of so many Foundations and individuals all sharing a passion and fondness for Thomas Jefferson High School.

Guido Brothers Construction Company will serve as the General Contractor for this project, given their extensive experience in the restoration of numerous projects having historical significance.

On July 27th, 2017, some of the Directors for the Thomas Jefferson high School Historical Preservation Society met with several companies at the School who will play a vital role in this restoration project. These include Burditt Tile & Stone, Inc., Sculptural Designs Atelier, Fountain Works, as well as SAISD. This meeting allowed those subcontractors an opportunity to do an onsite visit to observe existing conditions in an effort to come up with their pricing for the project.

Special Thanks goes to James Gray with Rialto Studio, Inc. for taking this journey with the Thomas Jefferson High School Historical Preservation Society and who was instrumental in helping lay the ground work so that this project could commence.

Memory Bricks

We need a shot in the arm to get the next (third) batch of bricks laid. We have orders for about 75 bricks right now., but we need more to move on engraving and laying.

We need at least 100 bricks to have a set engraved. We need at least 200 to put a batch in the ground. We hate to make people wait so long after they buy a brick before they see it on campus, but  our stewardship of the Society's funds requires that we do things only at financially advantageous breakpoints.

Put this project on your social media to reach out to as many Jeff grads as you can to help get those bricks into the ground.

Here is a suggested post for your Facebook page, complete with a link to an order form. Copy and paste it into your Facebook status:
