Wabash City Schools laid out an ambitious plan and timeline for building projects that it hopes to complete in the coming years during a public work session Monday, April 8, at the Honeywell Center’s Legacy Hall.

The plan calls for the borrowing of up to $30 million, to be paid off over the course of 20 years, if all of the school district’s projects in fact get off the ground.

“We’re just really excited,” Superintendent Jason Callahan said. “As Wabash City Schools Board of Trustees president Tony Pulley said, ‘We don’t want to be status quo. We want to keep our eyes on the future.’ And, we want to create grand opportunities for our kids, academically, athletically. We feel like these projects will take us into the next several decades and provide us the facilities and space that will allow us to continue to grow – grow kids, grow programming and opportunities for great outcomes.”
