One of the city’s oldest high schools has received a face lift.
New windows have been installed at W.B. Ray High School. Those repaired are all facing Texan Trail and were original to the building since its 1947 opening.
Ray principal Cissy Reynolds Perez said the new sleek windows have excited those on campus.
“W.B. Ray is a very well built school,” she said. “We have those hardwood doors and marble floors, but the windows were the ones that were a little crackly. So, getting these new windows just adds to the aesthetics of the building.”
Funds for the new windows came from the Corpus Christi Independent School District’s 2016 bond.
CCISD officials have targeted the windows facing Staples Street if voters approve the district’s 2018 bond proposal.
