Representatives from Bridge City ISD, G&G Enterprises, Claycomb Associates Architects and the public will gather Monday, March 6th at 5:00 PM for the Groundbreaking Ceremony to launch the construction phase of the new CTE building.
The Groundbreaking Ceremony will feature remarks from Dr. Mike Kelly, Superintendent of BCISD; Ms. Rebecca Rutledge, School Board President; Mr. Tim Woolley, Bridge City High School Principal; Natasha Garrett, CEO of G&G Enterprises; and Will Clayton, Project Manager at Claycomb Associates Architects.
“I would like to thank our staff, bond committee, G&G Enterprises, Claycomb Associates Architects and the entire Bridge City community for helping today become a reality. Not only is this a great day for our students who will have access to incredible facilities and resources to prepare them for success well into the future, it is also a great day for the community of Bridge City and all of Southeast Texas. I'm excited to report that local subcontractor and supplier participation is just over 97% on the Career Technical Education building. This means that approximately 98% of the bond revenue on this project will stay local to Southeast Texas! We are excited to prepare students for high need careers in healthcare, maritime, welding, teaching, fine arts, law enforcement, engineering, information technology, as well as, refining and chemical process technology. Our desire is to educate, prepare, and graduate top tier students who will bring their talents and gifts back home to Southeast Texas to serve the community that has been so supportive of our school district.” – Dr. Mike Kelly, BCISD Superintendent
“G&G Enterprises and Claycomb Architects have been nothing short of amazing during the planning process for the new CTE addition at Bridge City High School. From the beginning, they made every effort to include the BCHS classroom teachers to make sure the spaces for our students will prepare them for every learning opportunity or career after graduation." - Tim Woolley, BCHS Principal
The community of Bridge City is invited to attend. Refreshments will be served.
