DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) - It was a night of learning and discovery for community members as they were welcomed into the new science wing at Diboll High School.
The school district held an official open house for the wing that first opened up to students in August.
"This is a brand new hallway and class rooms," Principal John Clements said "We finished the construction over the summer and the students came in here on the first day of school. The walls are still a little bare but we are working on getting more things up and making this exciting."
The building has been in the works for several years and was funded through the district and a grant from the Temple Foundation. Members of the Temple Foundation were on hand tonight as the rooms were being shown off.
The addition of the hall will add more room for new chemistry, physics, biology and forensic labs. Clements said the district is hoping in the near future to add an environmental studies lab. Clements added that the wing brings a lot of pride to the students and teachers.
"The better the campus looks, the more innovation and the more technology you have," Clements said. "It just gives kids hope and makes them proud of their school of who they are and it's giving them more experiences."
