The community opening of the new Lake View Middle School wing was held on Thursday afternoon.
Principal Edison Arnette said this was “a vision of many years,” and he was very excited to see this vision come to completion. He thanked the taxpayers and everyone from the local level to Washington for making this possible for the students.
Dillon District Four Superintendent Ray Rogers also made remarks. He thanked Stephen Laird, the former Lake View Superintendent. Laird in turn thanked the citizens of Lake View for giving the students an opportunity to have this new structure. He wished everyone luck. Rogers then continued by recognizing the Dillon County Board of Education, the Dillon District Four Board, the former board of Lake View, Metro Contracting, sfL+a, Cumming, Brownstone, Senator Dick Elliott, A.B. and Thomas Jordan, the Dillon County School Facilities Corporation, and everyone who played a part in making this happen.
After brief remarks, the ribbon was cut by Lake View Middle School students—Taylor Bethea, George Edwards, Logan Spivey, and Stone Spivey. Lake View cheerleaders led tours of the new wing.
The new middle school wing, located at Lake View High School, includes seven new classrooms, one science room, a computer lab, a media center, a principal’s office and miscellaneous administration area, and related circulation (19,450 sq. ft.). An existing “wing” was remodeled into three classrooms and an exceptional children’s classroom, according to project reports.
