LCISD cuts ribbon on new Performing Arts Center

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock-Cooper opened the doors to its new Performing Arts Center with a ceremonial ribbon cutting Monday. Folks gathered in the 800 seat auditorium which is the anchor of the new center. Superintendent Pat Henderson and school board members accompanied the school band on stage to cut the ribbon. Commissioner Bill McCay, Mayor Tom Martin and Councilman Paul Beane were all there at the ribbon cutting.

The building has band and choir rooms, back stage dressing rooms for theater performances. Money from the 2006 bond election was used to build the center. A public hearing will be held in the auditorium to discuss the upcoming $80 million bond election May 9th. The estimated average tax increase on a $135,600 home will be $301 a year or about $25 a month.

"I think in the long run we'll be glad that we did it. Even though we might have to reach a little deeper into our pockets," said Lubbock-Cooper ISD resident Marty Edwards." "The junior high is overcrowded and they're adding elementary schools so one junior high isn't enough," said parent Michele Woolam.
