St. Clairsville, OH (May 7, 2013) – Belmont College is pleased to announce that students in their Building Preservation/Restoration (BPR) program were recently awarded the annual preservation award from the Friends of Wheeling.

The awards were presented during the annual Friends of Wheeling preservation and awards dinner which was held on May 1 at Mount St. Joseph in Wheeling.

Students from the Doors & Windows class led by BPR Instructor Cathie Senter received a preservation award for work they completed on the historic Capitol Theatre to restore the second story wooden windows on the front of the building. The class focused their labors on the large window above the marquee; this window is the largest and most complicated of all the windows on the Main Street elevation. The students logged over one thousand hours of donated labor plus materials on the project.

Additionally BPR students Stephanie Wright and Brian Wilson received preservation awards for their work to restore windows in the Tallman Mausoleum in Greenwood Cemetery. The pair worked on this project for completion of their independent Advanced Material Science project. Brian and Stephanie accomplished their goal of conserving the remaining glass and reproducing the missing pieces using historically accurate materials and techniques.
