VAPAA Building makes its debut

The start of the second semester has signaled the official opening of the bond measure-funded Visual and Performing Arts and Academic (VAPAA) building on the campus of San Benito High School. The building also houses some social science classes. Heather Nichols, division chair of the VAPA Department and a dance educator and advisor, said her department is appreciative of the new building that houses "professional-standard classrooms in dance, visual arts and ceramics."
