JONESBORO -- The grand opening for the new Fine Arts Center at Valley View Schools was held on Sunday. People from all across the community came out to show their support for the years of work that have gone into the completion of this project.

Drama,band, and choir students at Valley View have needed a new facility for years. And one student said this new center is very important to the school, "I'm a senior this year and it's nice to have something my last year here to be able to perform a play in."

This new state of the art facility not only serves as the perfect venue for concerts and plays, but also houses classrooms for the drama department, the band, and the choir to use for study as well.  "Over in the other building there's a lot of distractions and here they get to focus on what they're learning.  Having the classrooms in this building is going to help our education," said Valley View drama teacher Michelle Moss.
