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

Students from the Doors & Windows class led by BPR Instructor Cathie Senter received
