The Lincoln Education Center is one step closer to being totally renovated and could be ready for the various offices to be occupied very soon. The Center is a standing piece of history that holds memories for many area residents. When the old Lincoln Junior High was being replaced and the building demolished, the portion that will now hold support offices was spared.
According to Superintendent Andy Hartley, the Center will house vocational, special education, and adult education programming and could be ready by spring break. During the February meeting of the Plymouth School Board, Hartley said, “They’re just doing some final touch-ups on painting, there still some carpet to finish upstairs-the big final portion is just that east entrance that will go into the parking lot. They’re just finishing the doors and windows there. We’re still hopeful that we’ll be able to move our J.E.S.S.E, vocational, and adult education over the spring break. It’s the hope to get at least some furniture in there.”
Hartley noted the parking lot in between the Lincoln Education Center and the New Lincoln Junior High School will be covered in asphalt when the weather allows.
