Open house, dedication for Union Collegiate Academy set Sept. 23
Superintendent Dr. Cathy Burden, Board President Heather McAdams and Tulsa Community College President Dr. Thomas K. McKeon will be featured speakers during a formal dedication of the new Union Collegiate Academy wing at Union High school, 6636 S. Mingo Road, at 2 p.m. Sunday, September 23.
Former State Superintendent Sandy Garrett will be a special guest speaker, followed by Union Deputy Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler.
The public is invited to the dedication as well as an open house for the new Collegiate Academy wing from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. There will be refreshments, entertainment and tours for the whole family. The formal program will be held 2 to 2:30 p.m.
The new Union Collegiate Academy, which serves 3,200 students in grades 10 through 12, resembles a college campus rather than a high school, with its tiered lecture rooms and comfortable study areas spread throughout the building.
Union voters approved two consecutive bond issues to fund the impressive $29-million facility. It is a 125,000-square-foot building with three stories, 37 classrooms, a student union, the Catherine E. Burden College and Career Center, a large meeting room that seats up to 300 people, a cyber café, and a tiered lecture room that accommodates as many as 240 students---120 on each side when the retractable wall is in use.
