The Town of Edgefield received a $25,000 Hometown Economic Development Grant from the Municipal Association of SC to build a matching arbor for Tompkins Alley located on Courthouse Square. These STCTC students, along with their instructor, Mr. Bill Cheatham, successfully replicated the first arbor. Students used blueprints, oxy-acetylene torches, GMAW process and mig welding to create the arbor.
Stop by Tompkins Alley and take a closer look! We are proud of these STCTC students, their talent and their dedication to make Edgefield a better place to live, work and raise a family. We must preserve our past and secure our future. Thank you for helping us to promote our historic downtown! Submitted
