New School progress
Jeff Gattis (left, above photo), Nabholz construction project manager, and Angel Petet (right), head of the New School lower and middle schools, lead a tour Tuesday of construction at the school’s Fayetteville campus. The school added an upper school, starting in August with freshmen. Lead gifts from the J.B. Hunt family and Todd and Shelley Simmons totaling $13 million enabled the school to begin Phase 1 of its campus plan. The school has raised $14.5 million of its $25 million goal for Phase I.
