    At long last, West’s new drinking fountain  has been installed.  It fills  disposable plastic bottles, keeping track of how much waste is eliminated by reusing bottles.  Paid for by the hard work of Student Senate, cold water can be had year round!  It only took a year and a half!  Be appreciative when you use it!

Knew you had it in you.
