The Foundation is pleased to announce its most recent completed project at Taft High School.  The refurbishment of the so-called BLACK BOX THEATER is located in the "new" addition of Taft High School completed in 1975, over 40 years ago.  The wood floor had never been refinished and our team of specialists completed the work over the Christmas break in late December.
