    (Littleton, Colo.) — In collaboration with Arapahoe High School (AHS) and Littleton Adventist Hospital, the family and friends of Claire Davis are creating Clarity Commons—a one-acre, park-like environment that will be built at the corner of Dry Creek Road and South University Boulevard on the campus of AHS, to honor the life and memory of Claire. Clarity Commons will provide a tranquil quiet area where the students and faculty of AHS can go to study, converse, reflect and relax, and will include areas for individuals and small groups, as well as space for outside classrooms, larger group gatherings and outdoor activities. Work on Clarity Commons is scheduled to begin in early June and will be completed before AHS starts school in mid-August.

    “The purpose of Clarity Commons is to create a safe and appealing area for the AHS community that encourages learning, individual growth and respect for others,” said Michael Davis, Claire’s father. “We know that Claire’s personality will be reflected in Clarity Commons and are grateful that this will be a calming space for the community for many years to come.”

    Featuring berms that will reduce noise, beautiful mature trees, a paved walkway, picnic tables, benches and a large, centrally located granite pillar engraved with inspirational thoughts and quotes, Clarity Commons celebrates Claire’s love of life, the outdoors and her ability to bring people together through her happy and optimistic spirit.

    “Part of our mission is to nurture the health of the people in our community. Clarity Commons provides respite for the body, mind and soul, giving students, faculty and the community a place where they can be filled with hope and peace. We are blessed to help celebrate Claire’s life in this way,” stated Brett Spenst, president and CEO of Littleton Adventist Hospital.

    “It is our hope that Clarity Commons will be a place of healing and encouragement for our students and faculty,” said Natalie Pramenko, Arapahoe High School principal.

    Clarity Commons will also provide a venue for inspirational messages from the entire community. In addition to the granite pillar inscribed with quotations, there will be a plaza area and adjacent walkway where members of the community can purchase pavers inscribed with personal messages of hope and encouragement for future generations of students and faculty.

    You can learn more about the plans for Clarity Commons, and get more information about the pavers, including how to contribute, at www.rmahf.org/claritycommons.
