For years, Stubblefield has been a school in East Texas giving at-risk students the tools they need to succeed in life. Now, Stubblefield has a new and improved home that will better help its students.
The new facility is 3,500 square feet bigger than the old building. Stubblefield also has plans to add ELS courses and start a dual learning program with Angelina College.
Graduate David Brevard said, "Stubblefield is a school for the dropouts and people who didn't fit in the public school systems. Stubblefield Learning Center gives them an opportunity to get a diploma."
The students hope to move in to the new center just in time for summer school.
Student Dustin Hutchison said, "Right now, [we're in] this real small facility and we have a lot of students coming in and out, in and out. It's important that we have a big building like this for our learning."
