Thousands on gym, nothing on auditorium

  • Friday, September 5, 2014

To the Editor:

I have a question for those elected officials for the city of Georgetown and Georgetown County.

How is it that you have spent thousands of dollars to renovate the gym and other parts of Howard High School, a gym that will not be used, according to reports?

Spent thousands of dollars to renovate Beck, that has a weight room that any college would be proud to have? A gym that hardly anybody knows about.

And as yet, not offered a helping hand or one red cent to help with the Winyah Auditorium?

Not even to excuse the taxes owed on it?

Is it not a part of Grorgetown also?

Will it not be an asset to Georgetown?

Why then is the committe asking for donations for Winyah to help save it?

How many donations were given to the other two projects?

Donations of our tax dollars?

Do you only help those who stand up and shout?

Well I am shouting!

Help save a part of a school who’s history goes back to the days Georgetown was first settled.
