We are a Kansas not-for-profit corporation formed to save the built history of the old school and maintain neighborhood integrity by cultivating community engagement, developing opportunities, and ensuring fiscal sustainability.  


Our Board of Lee Anne and Wade Coester, Chris Carathers, Kelly and Alison Johnson, Sue Alexander, Mike Schmidt, Justin Garr, Amanda Collins, Elena Rettiger-Lincoln and Gwen Runde, and advisory members Christy Davis and Jennifer Laird, is working to raise funds to secure the property and then support the development of the property to meet community needs.  The group has held several community meetings for input and has sorted the community’s suggestions for this property into the following five categories: outdoor space, gymnasium/stage uses, community services, teaching/learning opportunities, and business/housing ideas.
