Boone Community School District is thrilled to announce that Ledges Elementary School has been honored with the Masonry Institute of Iowa (MII) Appreciation Award. This award recognizes Ledges Elementary’s outstanding contributions to the masonry industry and its impactful presence within the community. Seedorff Masonry, Inc. nominated Ledges Elementary for the award in recognition of their outstanding work and collaboration on the project. The MII Appreciation Awards celebrate excellence in Iowa’s construction projects that prominently feature the work of MII member contractors or utilize material suppliers from the institute. Eligible projects demonstrate significant achievements in masonry assemblies, including landscaping and segmental retaining walls. Awards are based on various criteria, such as contributions to the masonry industry, community impact, visual appeal, construction detailing, and workmanship. The award ceremony took place at the MII Annual Meeting, where recipients, including the project owner and designer, were presented with recognition plaques acknowledging their achievements. Ledges Elementary’s receipt of this award underscores Boone CSD’s commitment to quality, durability, and aesthetic excellence in its facilities. The project was recognized for its significant contributions to the masonry industry, positive community impact, visual attractiveness, meticulous construction detailing, and superior workmanship. “We are immensely proud of the recognition Ledges Elementary has received,” said Julie Trepa, BCSD Superintendent. “This award is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and collaborative spirit of all those involved in the project. It reflects our commitment to providing exceptional learning environments for our students and staff. We are grateful to Seedorff Masonry for the nomination and to the Masonry Institute of Iowa for this honor." Boone CSD extends its appreciation to all project partners and looks forward to continuing its mission of creating inspiring educational spaces.
