Maryland School for the Blind Students at Ceremonial Beam Signing

October 29, 2013 – Students at Maryland School for the Blind took part in a ceremonial raising of the topping out beam for the school’s new academic building.

Over 100 Students and staff joined members of the Lewis team in signing the building’s topping beam before it was erected. The event took place Friday, October 25th at the construction site on the school’s 100 acre campus in northeast Baltimore. The beam is part of the superstructure for the school’s new two-story state-of-the-art learning activity center which is part of a multi-phase campus improvement project that will also include new residential cottages.

Students were eager to take part in another opportunity to get up close and personal with the construction site. In September, they had the opportunity to tour the construction site and interact with the Lewis team to learn about the construction equipment, tools, and materials being used on the location.
