Milestone presents check to Fairfax middle school
Milestone Communications presented a $30,000 check to Thoreau Middle School on Monday. School Principal, Mark Greenfelder, accepted the check during the stacking of the tower. Milestone is constructing a wireless tower designed to look like a tree that will blend in with the existing school campus. The Thoreau tower will be the first wireless treepole tower on a Fairfax County Public School.
“The Funds from the cell tower will be used to develop and support various initiatives that support student learning at Thoreau,” said Greenfelder. “We will create additional staffing positions for much-needed intervention programs to meet the needs of our students. We will also use the cell-tower funds to purchase additional instructional materials and new technologies for our classrooms.”
This will be the 25th wireless facility to be built on a Fairfax County School, and will generate over $50,000 in re-occurring annual revenue for the school system. The wireless infrastructure program has generated more than $5 million in revenue for the school system.
