American Leadership Academy in Spanish Fork is nearing completion on their new Fine Arts Center and Practice Gym.
The new 18,000 square foot building located next to the stadium will provide a weight room and practice gym for athletes. It will also house many fine arts programs including band and orchestra, dance and choir.
“We are excited to have more space!” Assistant principal Kim Searle’s cheery exclamation reflects that of many of the students and faculty at ALA. Director Rich Morley added, “Our enrollment is growing and many of our programs will now have the ability to grow as well.”
The two level facility will also serve as the new lunch room and adds needed storage rooms as well.
Assistant Principal Paul Ashby thinks the new addition promotes a sense of positive progress. “The students will now have more opportunities to practice, to prepare and in general it will really be a gathering place.”
The ribbon cutting will be held August 14th at 11:30 AM
