Brentwood’s new basketball locker room prompted nothing but smiles from the group that helped to make it happen. Showing their approval of the final product is (left to right) Brentwood Athletic Director Ronnie Seigenthaler, parents Sally Schumpert and Linda Bautista and John Maher Builders Land Development Manager Randy Aydelotte who spearheaded the project for the company.
John Maher Builders recently helped coordinate a complete renovation of the Brentwood High School men’s basketball locker room. The project was spearheaded by BHS parents Linda Bautista and Sally Schumpert. Two local businesses—3TLP and Jarvis Signs—also contributed to the project.
“It was truly the hard work of many people that made this all come together in such a tremendous way,” said Bautista. “The kindness of this community made such a difference. We are so thankful to the many generous individuals and local businesses that made this possible.”
The new Brentwood Bruins lockers are designed to compare with those used by professional athletes.
John Maher Builders took part in a comparable renovation of the Lady Bruins’ basketball locker room eight years ago. The locker room renovations are just a portion of the projects the company has made possible for the school over the past 10 years, including installation of dugouts and construction of a press box for the soccer field, renovation of the football field press box, among others.
The company also assisted in placing four boulders—found during excavation of the Wade’s Grove in Spring Hill—at the school’s entrance. The boulders, weighing thousands of pounds each, have become part of a school tradition as they are redecorated each year by the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes.
“The list of projects John Maher Builders has made possible for us is certainly extensive,” said Coach Ron Seigenthaler, Brentwood High School Athletic Director. “Our relationship with them is truly an ‘ace up our sleeve’ and we are blessed to have it.”
John Maher, President of John Maher Builders, is a founding member of the Spring Hill Imagination Library and also provides scholarships to Williamson County student athletes through the John Maher Scholar Athlete program, in conjunction with the Williamson Herald, which is in its 8th year. Maher is also a Williamson County Schools Ambassador.
“Student athletes are among the best and brightest of what the future has to offer,” said Maher, who is a former educator and coach for the Franklin Special School District.
“Achieving the tremendous level of success—both on and off the field—that the athletes at Brentwood High School have requires a huge amount of work and dedication. Their efforts should be celebrated and I am glad that John Maher Builders can be a part of that.”
