For many years the McClain Alumni Association has maintained a special fund for the eventual restoration of McClain’s historic artworks. Over this past winter a group of three statues were restored to their original condition and appearance. That project was funded by monies from both the Board of Education and The Alumni Association.
To continue restoration it was recently announced that the Alumni Association has given the school a check for $55,000 to cover the cost of restoring a fourth statue, Joan of Arc, and the long frieze of the Parthenon on the main floor.
Hopefully within a few more years the generous donations of the McClain family will be ready for another century of service.
