Cooks enjoy working on Benson alma mater
Installing new windows, designed with modern materials to look as the building’s original windows, has been a significant experience for Ralph and Kimberly Cook, of Wallsburg, Utah.
The couple has installed new windows in historic edifices for several years, but said working on the Oneida Stake Academy has held special meaning for them because they are fans of Ezra Taft Benson, one of the schools more famous alumni.
”It’s been especially neat because Ezra Taft Benson is a patriot and we are studying him this year,” Kimberly said. Working on such an historic edifice has been gratifying, the couple said. “It’s probably the oldest building we’ve worked on,” said Ralph.
“I took a couple of pictures and sent them to my father, and he said ‘Well, you make sure you do a really good job,” chuckled Kimberly.
“We’re sure glad we were able to do this job,” she said.
