This fall, Nimitz, Irving and MacArthur High School
celebrated a new chapter in school history with the opening of newly renovated fine
arts and athletic facilities. Each school unveiled their enhanced spaces during
special grand opening ceremonies and commemorated the moment with ribbon
cuttings led by student artists and athletes.
Team Irving and community partners were invited to the events which included special remarks from Board President Dr. Steven Jones, Superintendent Dr. Jose Parra, Director of Fine Arts Jeff King and Director of Athletics Clint Roddy. Afterwards, guests had the opportunity to tour the renovated spaces and enjoy student fine arts performances to close out the evening.
