FEMA Safe Room Grand Opening and Superintendent Honored
On Wednesday, May 20th, Scott City Schools held the official grand opening of the FEMA Safe Room and Visual and Performing Arts Center. The event include opening remarks from Superintendent Diann Ulmer detailing the process of how the project came to be and how it developed. Next came the official ribbon cutting before everyone moved into the theater to watch a scene from the current high school play "Arsenic and Old Lace", with the preceding scene explanation provided by the drama club teacher, Mitch Madry. After the performance, the soon to be retired Superintendent Ulmer was given a surprise, as the Board of Education chose this moment to honor her for her 13 years as superintendent and 28 total years in education, all at Scott City Schools. Several speakers stood up and took a few minutes to speak and show their appreciation for her work and dedication throughout her career. After the small ceremony for Mrs. Ulmer, the high school art teacher, Matt Miller, had a chance to speak and explain just how wonderful and important the Visual and Performing Arts Center is for the school district. The evening concluded with cake, cookies and drinks, marking the end to a very nice and very touching event.
