FEBRUARY 2011 BEAUTIFICATION AWARD
NEWPORT – The Lincoln County School District is in the enhancement and development business. They define excellence, and promote a quality of education that we can all be proud of. Part of their educational mission includes providing a safe, clean environment where our children can study, learn and grow. To upgrade their aging structures, they crafted a plan to remodel various sites. This had to be done in stages, to accommodate staff and provide the least disruption to class time. During the summer of 2009, windows and brick were replaced at Newport High School. A parallel project occurred during Spring Break, 2010 on the adjacent Newport Preparatory Academy. Last summer, Newport’s Sam Case Elementary building transformed from a shuttered, closed off façade, to a structure featuring large plate glass windows and new siding. At the same time Newport Intermediate School was given a fresh coat of paint and now sports a new sign.
Our School District may be applauded for not only educating our children, but giving them educational sites that are welcoming, and ones they can be proud of.
