A school supporting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) is all set to honor a Dallas business icon.
Dallas ISD trustees are uniting Pease and Bushman Elementary schools to come up with the Albert Black STEAM Academy.
The southern Dallas Campus honored the first African American Chairman of the Dallas Regional Chamber.
Dark said the $31 million venture would not be possible without the local area's assistance.
He further added, "My civic and business career has been one that people dream of. It’s because this community has held me up and pushed me forward. You’ve led me. You’ve tolerated me. You’ve loved me. That’s how I know that we could succeed at those things we tried together and together is the key word there."
Pease Elementary School will be changed over into a Pre-K-only, and Bushman will be redesigned for the new STEAM school.
