The White River Partnership (WRP) recently visited the temporary classrooms at the South Royalton school to deliver a beautiful handmade desk to art teacher Gaylynn Huyghebaert.
The highly unusual donation resulted from a fundraiser raffle conducted by the WRP, made possible by the generosity of Art Stacy of Sharon who made and donated the oak desk, and also by an unidentified individual who won the
desk in the raffle but donated it to the school.
Added to Stacy’s original design upon delivery was a small plaque that read, “Handmade by Art Stacy of Sharon, Vt. and donated to the South Royalton School by the White River Partnership, February 25, 2012.”
The desk was designed and handmade by Stacy, who is a WRP member. Stacy entered the desk in the 2008 Vermont Fine Furniture Competition, where it won an award in the very competitive Custom Furniture division.
