The Nixa School District surprised a member of their board by naming a newly remodeled building after him.
The district purchased and renovated the building that had been housing the SCORE program. The SCORE program helps students who benefit from smaller class sizes and extra focus.
The building was named after Glenn R. Scott, who has served on the board since 1986. In addition to naming the building after him, it was also announced that proceeds from Nixa Sucker Days will be used to give a $1,000 scholarship to a SCORE student who is seeking to continue their education after high school.
Since its founding in 1998, over 440 students have graduated from the SCORE program. The board of education has earmarked funding for the program every year because of the benefit to students even without additional state funding.
