"I want to thank our architectural firm- SEI Design... and specifically Mike Ebertz. This project was more than just a capital project in a a school district. It was a vision... a passion. It was attempting to change the course of history for out local community. It was an effort to impact generations for students and families. It was the attempt to become a single campus... the closure of schools and the construction of new. No easy task and one rarely accomplished. The firm you work with on this type of project needs to know you... your school and your community. They need to care. Mike Ebertz cares about this District."Douglas Premo,Superintendent of Schools, South Lewis CSD
