Logan Raises Another $200K for Center Block Plaza


The city announced a new donation for Logan’s Center Block Plaza project on Tuesday.

The Emma Eccles Jones Foundation will contribute a $200,000 grant for the upcoming downtown plaza, and the city will name the plaza’s water feature after Eccles Jones.


“Emma Eccles Jones has longstanding ties to Cache Valley and was Northern Utah’s first kindergarten teacher in 1926 after receiving a degree from Teachers College at Columbia University,” the city stated in a press release. “The water feature, where children, families and others can come together to enjoy summer fun and splash through the fountain, will be named for the Emma Eccles Jones Foundation in recognition of its generous support.” Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
