At the groundbreaking ceremony Architect Sean Willis, Manhattan Construction Mike Holland, Manhattan Construction Craig Abbot, YHS Principal Melissa Barlow, Yukon City Mayor Shelli Selby, Board President Suzanne Cannon, Board Member Cody Sanders, Board Member Leonard Wells and YPS Superintendent Dr. Jason Simeroth break ground with gold-plated shovels.

Yukon Public Schools broke ground on the new Instructional and Performing Arts building on Friday, September 1st, 2023, at 6:15 p.m., and held a ceremony to commemorate the new facility

“We are thrilled to finally break ground on our cutting-edge instructional, performing arts, and athletic facilities, this marks a significant milestone in Yukon’s commitment to providing unparalleled educational experiences,” Yukon Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jason Simeorth said.

This center held more than 1,500 seats in the auditorium. In addition to that, there will also be 17 classrooms, as well as storage, for media production, drama, orchestra, theatre and aerospace classes. Esports is also receiving an improved lounge in this building.

“We are supposed to get all new furniture,” S.T.E.M teacher and Esports coach Danielle Stewart said. “It will look like an actual esports lounge.”

Having a new hub for these subjects will improve the trek from one class to another for people going to the building, as well as people who are just traversing from point A to point B in the school.

“It’s cool because you won’t have to travel super far,” Sophomore Jonnie Sabarese said. “I think it’ll improve the school overall because of the travel.”
