The Paragould Junior High school gym is getting a facelift for the next school year.

The school board recently approved the purchase of new bleachers.

According to Principal Laurel Taylor the school uses the gym for various events and new bleachers will be a great addition.

"They are going to be beautiful, they are going to be school colors and they will have the Paragould logo on the side and they will be safe with railings on the outside and inside,” Taylor said.

Taylor also said there will be a space for wheelchair accessibility.

The school maintenance crew will take the old bleachers out at the end of the school year and the new ones will be installed over the summer.

Crews are also painting the gym right now and all upgrades should be completed by the start of next school year.
