Would you please log on to www.refresheverything.com/bengilelementary and vote to help my grandson's school earn a $250K grant from Pepsi. In a span of a short weekend in March, 2009, his 7 year old school was destroyed and made totally unusable FOREVER as a school. CAUSE: Mine subsidence. Our small rural communities were built during the 1st half of the 1900's. My Dad's parents moved there in 1917 so Papa could work in the newly opened coal mines.
The school was built on the site of the former high school built in the 1920's. It never had any problem with subsidence. Finding a suitable site is a challenge since the entire area was undermined with tunnels running every which way.
Kids will appreciate all your votes. Thanks
