Cost of admission is two dollars for children and three dollars for adults. Everyone is invited to come out tonight to join the fun and help with a great cause.
TISD Groundbreaking Ceremony – Timpson ISD students, staff and board of trustees broke ground for the new construction and improvements in the district made possible by the passage of the bond election. Superintendent Dr. Mid Johnson said in his remarks: “Today marks a milestone and a new beginning for our school district. Our vision, with God’s blessings, is to become the best school district in the State of Texas. Therefore, we are set to construct a new state of the art Collegiate and Career Center and event center. The primary construction will consist of a 55,000 square foot facility that includes a Collegiate Center, Event Center, and Agriculture Science Facility. The spot on which shovels are placed marks the far end of the new facility which will span to where the field house is located now or at least partially located now. In this new facility, students will be offered the chance to gain many college and career hours as they prepare for a successful career. They will have the chance to earn associates degrees, college hours, and certificates preparing them for a greater chance of success in college or for the workplace. To our knowledge, this type of facility is a new conceptual model that demonstrates a passion toward preparing students for their futures. We are very proud that our community wishes to invest so freely into the lives of children and we hope this is the beginning of something great that will endure the test of time and make these children’s lives richer. In other projects across the campus, we are renovating and expanding the current band hall, building a new softball field and complex, building a new playground, a new bus barn facility and are updating and renovating other parts of the entire campus. As we look into the future, let us learn from where we have been and seek vigorously where we are going. Let us never forget that the path to greatness is filled with hard work and will never really end but will reap rewards of greatness for our future community and children.” Timpson ISD Holds Groundbreaking for Collegiate, Career and Event Center (Video)
