This is the image for the news article titled MHS Auditorium Renovations Set For Summer 2021Marshall High School's auditorium will be undergoing a renovation this summer as part of Marshall ISD's ongoing efforts to update the 41-year old building from the district's general fund.

The auditorium, which still has the original flooring and seating from the school's opening in 1980, will receive new paint, new flooring and new seating as part of the renovation project. MISD replaced the facility's lighting and sound system a couple of years ago.

In addition to the work on the auditorium, MISD will re-paint the exterior of the high school itself this summer. This project will include an extensive power wash as well as the addition of two new coats of paint with similar color.

Combined cost of the projects is roughly $562,000, with all the money coming out of the district's general fund balance.

Both projects are expected to be completed this summer.

MISD has done almost a complete facelift of MHS and its surrounding facilities since 2018, with the vast majority of funding coming from the district's fund balance. In addition to the upcoming auditorium and exterior painting, the projects below have already been completed:

• Conversion of all lighting to LED lighting, which is an energy cost savings to the district
