More changes are underway at Lee-Scott Academy.

One of the most visible additions is a brand new bus that recently arrived from the manufacturer.

It was custom-built to the school’s specifications with storage room under the bus for the Warrior Band to carry equipment, air conditioning and a custom audio system. The Blue Bird bus can seat 52 people. The new bus, along with the school’s other late-model bus, will allow Lee- Scott’s athletic teams and band to travel in style.

Several construction projects to improve LSA’s athletic facilities are also in progress. The old football practice field is being expanded into a full football and soccer field. When the new field is complete, the soccer team, which recently won a state championship, will no longer have to practice on the football field with the track and field team. The soccer team will have an entire field all to themselves.

The construction is being supervised by a LSA parent, Milt Pointer, and is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
