A Look Ahead: Spring/Summer 2022-23

A Look Ahead: Spring/Summer 2022-23

Tower Project

University School of Milwaukee’s tower is as recognizable to our brand as the golden arches are to McDonald’s, or the swoosh is to Nike’s. This summer, the school is investing significant muscle power to return the tower to its original glory. The tower is getting a total makeover—complete with new aluminum windows, new LED lights, new gutters, and a fresh coat of paint—thanks in part to the community’s USM Fund gifts. When students return to school in the fall, they will be greeted by a tower that’s as fresh and new as their pencils and notebooks. Crewmen prepared new aluminum windows for installation. Every effort was made to ensure that “lifer” signatures—a decades-long rite of passage for students who have attended USM since 1st grade (or earlier)—were saved.
