Center Middle School in Boardman to get new look

Parts of the building are more than 100 years old, and administration said it is time for some updates

Center Middle School is getting a fresh coat of paint and some other updates, thanks to donations and volunteers.

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Boardman’s Center Middle School is getting its own extreme makeover after classes end this spring, and most of the work and materials will all be donated.

Although parts of the building are more than a 100 years old, the district can’t afford the cost of a new school. Administrators are turning to the community for help to give the place a new look in time for the next academic year.

“We have some donations. Fundraising is going on where people can adopt a classroom for a price. That money’s going into paint. Sherwin-Williams has signed on to be a corporate sponsor. They’re donating paint and reducing the cost of it,” said Center Middle School Principal Randy Ebie.

Ebie said consultants have come up with a new color scheme for the building’s walls, lockers and common areas. Volunteers and parents will paint everything the week of June 13, after classes finish for the summer.
