DRAPER — A generous donation has provided the new Corner Canyon High School with a "victory light."

Electric-blue lights will shine when the Chargers claim a victory, whether it be athletic or academic. The aim of the light is to unify the community behind the achievements of the school, according to a press release.

“You will be able to see it from all parts of Draper,” said Principal Mary Bailey. “It’s going to be quite special.”

John Martindale, a member of the Corner Canyon School Community Council, whose children will attend the Draper school, provided the financial support through an account established by the now-deceased Martin Elston. Martindale was asked to ensure that the money was used to help people and make the world a better place.

Martindale learned of the school's need for a donor at a Community Council meeting.

Bailey said a plaque commemorating Elston’s support will be placed in the school’s rotunda.
