Indian Lake Elementary fourth graders are making their mark in Logan County history. Recently each fourth grader signed his or her name to a piece of slate with a permanent marker. Those slates will become part of the roof of the Logan County Courthouse.

A strong storm damaged the courthouse in June of 2012. Since that time, the Logan County Commissioners have spearheaded extensive renovations inside and out of the Courthouse, including replacing the iconic tower and now major repairs to the roof.

Commissioners John Bayliss, Tony Core and Dustin Wickersham asked every fourth grader in Logan County at Indian Lake, Bellefontaine, Benjamin Logan, Riverside, Calvary Christian and Mac-O-Cheek Schools to sign the slates. The commissioners also asked for a complete list of names of every student who signed to be included in a time capsule to opened in 50 years. Their hope is that by including the students in the current renovation, some of the students will be inspired to be involved in the opening of the capsule decades from now.
