AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Austintown schools welcomed the community to the dedication ceremony for its two new elementary schools.
Students from the K through 2 building and the 3 through 5 building cut the ribbon during the ceremony. Community members and local leaders all showed up to be a part of the event. Some state lawmakers were also in attendance.
After the ceremony, guests were allowed to tour the new buildings, which cost about $50 million to build.
“Bringing all of our seven buildings together down to two and just thanking the community for their support with a 2.9 mil bond levy that they gave us. And these are their buildings. They need to have an opportunity to come through them and see the great work that our local laborers have done and all the hard work that everyone on our core committee put in,” said Austintown Local Schools superintendent Vince Colaluca.
The Awesometown Community Fun Day also took place on the campus, with a number of different events going on throughout the day for the public.
