Heritage senior leaves legacy for school

Heritage senior leaves legacy for school

Randolph’s first inspiration for the project occurred during his freshman year and has remained with him since then.  He and his father, a local homebuilder for 20 years, approached the administration with the offer of building a bridge at no cost to the school, in partial fulfillment of Adam’s scouting requirement.  After being given the go-ahead, Adam solicited material donations and gathered 20 volunteers to help him with the project.

With the help of student colleagues, Mason Adkins, TJ Shorter, Caleb Oehlkers and others, Adam completed the 137 man-hour project on Aug. 7.

Until now, students were required to follow the roadway in order to get around a large drainage ditch between the school an parking area.  Adam’s project has permanently changed that requirement, providing a safer and more direct approach for students as they leave or return to their vehicles. 

Since the completion of the bridge students have been excited about the easier access and are appreciative to Adam for his undertaking such a large project.

When asked why he took on such a project, Adam replied with the four words, “We needed a bridge.”

Adam has one final fundraiser planned for September to help finance the cost of the structure.
