Lexington Four hosts groundbreaking for new performing arts center
Swansea, SC (Angelica Iglesias) - Lexington School District Four hosted their groundbreaking celebrating for the new Swansea High School Performing Arts Center on May 25 during their Community Partnership Breakfast at the high school.
The entire District Four Board of Trustees attended the event and participated in the actual groundbreaking along with several task force members. The task force for this project set up meetings, visited auditoriums around the Midlands and other tasks that made this addition possible.
One special member of the task force was Andrew Riley, a 2014 graduate of Swansea High School and former member of the Tiger Band. He is the one that told the administrators after he graduated that the district needed an auditorium. The project has been in the works that long; it is expected to be finished by the end of 2019.
"I think more than anything it will bring our students and community together. It allows our students to have a place to be proud of where they're performing. This is going to be a facility that our community can be a part of. It will be available to our community to rent, to use for various functions, so it's going to be a lot for Swansea and Gaston and the Lexington Four District," said Coordinator of Human Resources and Community Relations for District Four Lisa Ingram who headed the celebration breakfast.
