A New Place for All to Stay

Building the teen center extension
A+New+Place+for+All+to+Stay

During spring break, the school started to build a new extension. The building will become available for cadets that are stranded at school waiting for their rides. It brings an opportunity for students to work on homework, play games, or even just hang around.

Mr. Smith said, “It’s intention is to be a protection in and out of the weather. That will also be where Mr. Wendel’s office will be. Before and after school, cadets will be able to work after school and before school to be able to study and a place to feel comfortable while they are waiting for their ride or for school to start.”

Major Workman says, “The teen center is being built to provide a place for cadets who especially are stuck at school after hours. This is especially during the winter months. As we clear out the building after hours it provides a place for cadets to stay.” 

Major Workman continued, “We will have computers, a TV, and furniture will be provided for cadets to hangout. Mr. Wendel’s office will be moved as part of that area to help provide services to cadets that need them.”

With this, cadets will be able to move on from the cramped foyer space to an area specifically made for them. There’s always been a problem with cadets lingering in the area, since they’re technically not allowed to be in there. The installation of the Teen Center will prove beneficial for not only cadets, but also for UMA’s staff and visitors frequently using the front doors.
