THANK YOU FOR A SUCCESSFUL BROWN COUNTY 4-H SHOW
I would like to thank everyone who participated and helped with the 2012 Brown County 4-H Show on December 15th. The show went great and I am pleased with every one that participated. The main goal and purpose of this show was to give some experience to the 4-H members participating in the Brown County Youth Fair, I believe we succeeded in this goal. Special Thanks to all the superintendents of the show, Brownwood 4-H for working the concession stand, and Brookesmith 4-H for helping clean the barn after the show. Again, thank you for all your support and dedication to the Brown County 4-H program.
The Brownwood ISD maintenance crew, led by Vic Singleton, celebrated the completion of their new building, Friday, December 21st, by inviting Brownwood ISD staff to an open house to view the facility.
After taking on the project of constructing the pre-manufactured building exactly one year ago, it is estimated that Brownwood ISD’s maintenance department saved the district between $100,000 to $400,000 by constructing the pre-manufactured building themselves, utilizing the expertise of their crew. “Each of the 13 maintenance team members have given countless extra effort, above and beyond the normal call of duty, and far beyond what had ever been asked of them to complete the task,” reported Singleton. “They have displayed their talents and professionalism beyond even my expectations.”
Spending only $15,000 on outside contractors, the 10,800 sq. ft. facility houses 1200 sq. ft. of office space that includes a plan room and reception area. The remaining space includes separate shops for electrical, plumbing, HVAC, carpentry, grounds, locksmith, custodial, and dry storage.
The entire project cost around $136,000, including demolition of the old building, and the maintenance crew recycled any useful materials during construction. “One of the things we strive to do in our department is to utilize everything possible to save the district dollars,” said Singleton. “In this construction we were very careful to use any of the left over materials, phase out materials, and still functional material in our new building.”
