Jeff Tannatt was waiting for dusk to fall. Behind the Homestead, a new type of light—an induction florescent, to be specific—was shining across the parking lot. If the light proved bright enough, and Tannatt liked what he saw, then the director of the Physical Plant and his staff planned to install some 66 of the lights across campus.
Earlier this spring, a family at The Williston Northampton School made an anonymous donation of $60,000 to improve lighting across campus and renovate the school’s entrance way.
As a result, some 54 existing campus lights will be retrofitted with LEDs and another 12 around Middle School will be replaced. The gift also covered landscaping at the entrance way, repairs to the brick and stone gate, and the addition of a missing section of ornamental iron fence.
