On Wednesday, there was a lot of excitement at Harpers Ferry Middle School as they celebrated their newly renovated auditorium.
To celebrate the occasion, the school’s select chorus and jazz ensemble performed.
The last time the auditorium received renovations was more than 20-years ago, and it was done in part to meet ADA compliance, but since then, there had been deterioration and new ADA regulations. The school knew it was time for a new auditorium.
“We’re able, through the renovation process, to also, bring us fully up to speed with the new regulations for the new ADA compliance. And like I said, it’s the cultural center for our school, so we can now welcome in any guests that wants to be a part of any performance or activity at Harpers Ferry Middle School,” said Eric Vandell, the principal.
The auditorium was able to be renovated thanks to the Cultural Facilities and Capital Resources grant worth $100,000.
