It’s not every day the Governor visits your project! We were thrilled Governor Roy Cooper chose to tour the Community High School renovation project in support of his school bond funding plans. As community-based architects, it’s hard to imagine a project more in line with our mission than this school. Transforming this 1929 building into an accessible, flexible 21st-century learning environment is an incredible opportunity to give a historic building new life. Even more importantly, helping shape a school that specifically focuses on using rich community partnerships to nurture students for both academic and personal success makes us proud to be residents here in Western North Carolina. With very low student-teacher ratios, an integrated daycare, and a variety of counseling spaces, we hope this school positively impacts students’ lives for decades to come!
