ARMOREL, AR (KAIT) -

A new lobby will greet visitors to the Armorel High School gym.

On Monday, former Superintendent Sally Bennett cut the ribbon on the newly expanded lobby.

The 4,913-square foot expansion began in May during Bennett’s tenure, so it was only fitting she should be there when it opened.

The lobby now features curtain wall windows, an oversized concession, large group restrooms, as well as two family restrooms. A terrazzo floor bearing an intricate Armorel Tiger logo serves as the lobby’s focal point.

Others attending the ribbon cutting included all of the current school board members, as well as two others who recently stepped down.
