The new Ropes Course is named for their son, the late David Allen, who attended and graduated from CMC following a severe head injury. He was an active participant in the college’s experiential development program, of which the ropes course is the newest element.

The plaque behind Joan reads, “The David Allen High Ropes Course. Despite a debilitating head injury, David pursued his education with tenacity, perseverance, his grin and a sparkle in his eye. He stubbornly overcame the odds. He graduated. He succeeded. Never give up.”

Local donors for the course include Holy Cross Energy, Action Shop Services and Berthod Motors.
