A student-lead initiative is the reason the Stow-Munroe Falls High School has a new electronic message board on Graham Road.
Students solicited money from various organizations and groups and attending planning commission meetings at City Hall to get approval for the sign. The sign was completely paid for with donations.
"The sign is state of the art, it's two sided, with amber lights," said Steve Fry, who was representing Go2Marketing at a council meeting in September. He added the text on the screens will not scroll.
"It's much more aesthetically pleasing," Fry said. "It's going to be a great way to effectively communicate with the community."
