School Board agrees to build a bigger industrial/ag center
New Hampton Community Schools will build a larger vocational agriculture and industrial technology center, thanks to a fundraising campaign conducted by the FFA Alumni that has brought in more than $260,000 in various forms of donations.
“This is an exciting night for a number of reasons,” Superintendent Jay Jurrens said before the School Board voted Thursday evening to expand the center that is part of a $19.415 million building project that also includes a new middle school and competition gymnasium.
“This shows one of the things that I love about this community. It’s willing to partner with us and do what’s best for our kids.”
