Since 2010, Architectural Elements has created the “legacy project” for Northern Heights Elementary (NHE) School’s 5th-grade graduates.  During the last few months of the school year, a design theme is chosen by AE and presented to a NHE liaison.  Each year’s design embodies the spirit of moving forward and leaving the past behind. The designs are laser-cut from mild steel along with the names of every graduate.  The art piece is installed on a fence near the main entrance to the school two days before summer vacation.  The piece is unveiled during the school’s graduation ceremony and the children are able to find their names during their final school day.
