VLK Architects Celebrates Ribbon Cutting of Tomball ISD THS Agriculture Science Project Center
Tomball, Texas, (September 16, 2020) — On September 4, VLK Architects attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony commemorating the opening of the high school’s new agriculture center in Tomball ISD (TISD). This facility is from the 2017 bond and will serve Career & Technical Education high school students pursuing an agriculture education.
“The new Tomball High School Ag Science Project Center was planned and designed to serve students with career and technical interests in the food, fiber, and natural resource industries, encompassing science, business, and technology in addition to production agriculture,” said Rayce Boyter, Principal, VLK Architects.
The project includes two science classrooms that open directly to an outside courtyard, a nature trail, and a pond to incorporate outdoor learning. There are pens for cattle, lamb, hogs, poultry, and rabbits, along with a covered exercise and show practicing area.
“This is a state-of-the-art facility that was made possible by the overwhelming support of Bond 2017 by our community. It is always our goal to provide the best experiences we can offer for our students in a high-quality learning environment. This facility is just another example of that here in Tomball ISD,” said Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora, Superintendent of Tomball ISD.
