The Prophetstown-Lyndon-Tampico School District held a dedication ceremony as it unveiled its new addition.

The $18 million extension to the high school is more energy efficient and the district says it will save them money.

The addition is 66,000 sq. ft. and includes labs, a library, music rooms and a new gym with locker rooms.

“It shows how much a small rural community takes pride in their small towns and puts forth the effort to make sure things can happen,” said School Board President, Jill Ringenberg.

The state contributed all but a few million dollars to the project.

District leaders say property taxes will not increase.
