In doing so, they have set standards for the state and the nation," Governor Caperton said. The companies were nomi- nated for their unique applica- tions of energy efficiency or re- newable energy systems by the state's Fuel and Energy Office, a program administered by the Governor's Office of Community and Industrial Development. Both UCAR and Weirton Steel used students from the Student Energy Intern program operated through West Virginia University and the Fuel and Energy Office to develop and complete their projects. Jeff Herholdt, manager of the Fuel and Energy Office, said, "By linking education, government and business, these companies were able to successfully evalu- ate existing practices and imple- ment new technologies that di- rectly impacted their profits." UCAR, a subsidiary of Union Carbide in Anmoore, redesigned their graphite baking furnace. Weirton Steel Corporation sig- nificantly reduced their natural gas use by implementing a blast furnace bleed project through the Formal Quality Approach to Energy Management program.

Since the Greenbrier East High School (GEHS) community sup- port group purchased 16 acres adjacent to the Fairlea school in 1973 and spearheaded the con- struction of Spartan Stadium, work has seldom ceased on im- proving the athletic complex. According to Roy Coffman and Charles Boothe, retired teachers who promote the activities of the group, the latest project--a new athletic building behind the home bleachers--should be com- pleted by 1992. Ground was bro- ken for the 80-by-140-foot build- ing in 1986. and work has pro- gressed gradually as funds, ma- terials, and donated labor have become available. So much has been donated, however, that Mr Coffman and Mr Boothe declined to put a dol- lar value on it. "There's just no way of giving you an accurate figure," Mr Coffman said. "Many, many people have responded in a lot of different ways,--you can't keep track of all that's been given in money, building materi- als, and volunteer labor to make this building possible." According to GEHS football coach Homer Criddle, the school will end up with a valuable facil- ity. "1"o the people of Greenbrier County, it's going to mean a Ahead With New Athletic Building $500,000 building when it's fin- ished. People will still be using it when we're long gone. It will be a facility everyone can use--not just the school. We really need it. It seems a school or commu- nity can never have enough fa- cilities. Physical education classes at GEHS already use part of the building for weight training and wrestling practice. Other parts of the building will contain locker rooms, shower rooms, training 'facilities, and offices. A large room on the south side may be used for volleyball, basketball, and wrestling practices. "It's a much-need stnicture," GEHS principal Charles Carney said. "~l'he community response and the help of the Boosters have been a tremendous effort. This building has a fantastic po- tential for use by students and the community. I doubt if any other school In the state has a facility as great as this. There is a nucleus of people who have kept this effort going, and they deserve a lot of credit." The Spartan Boosters funded the majority of the Spartan Sta- dium complex, beginning with the land purchase in 1973. Nu- merous individuals throughout eastern Oreenbrier County do- nated money, materials, and la- bor to construct the football field, track, bleachers, conces- sion stands, dressing rooms, sprinkling systems, and other facilities, according to Mr Coffman and Mr Boothe. Mr Coffman retired in 1973 after 43 years in education, hav- ing served as teacher and princi- pal in Raleigh and Greenbrler counties. Mr Boothe retired In 1971 after 40 years as teacher and principal in Monroe and Greenbrier counties. He was superintendent of Monroe County schools for 12 years. g P No Reasonable Offer Refused m / 3 Days-Thursday, Friday & Saturday /> W~.- ! ....... =====~ q - // DROP IT OFF AT MOORE'S LAUNDROMAT 601 Big Draft Road W.S.S.
