Sandy Miller Brusco donated a new and improved reader board for the Toledo High School.
"The current sign is showing its age," stated Toledo High School Principal Martin Huffman. "The new sign will be easier to read and easier to update."
Mrs. Brusco is the widow of Gene Miller, a Toledo resident and volunteer and retired teacher and coach, Primo Brusco. His first teaching job was in 1950 at Toledo High School. Primo coached sports, and was a coach of several district champions. He often contributed to the Toledo community and was involved in the Elks, American Legion, Ocean Park Volunteer Firefighters, and the Toledo Historical Society. He retired in 1977, ending as a superintendent of Stevedore (CO) School District.
Mrs. Miller Brusco stated, "I've been thinking about this project for two years. I believe in paying it forward. This sign will benefit the whole community and area."
"We're so grateful for this donation," said Toledo School Board President Brad Dykstra. "The community relies on this sign for much of the information about what's happening." A dedication was held in the Toledo High School Tuesday, Nov. 28, and the public was invited to attend, as well as the entire Toledo High School population. During the dedication, many teachers gave their thanks to Mrs. Brusco for her very generous donation, and discussed about how much it will influence the community. Brusco herself gave a little speech and mentioned her family and what the reader board means to her.
