Adding a room
ADDING A ROOM — Union City Middle School principal Dan Boykin (center) has been honored by having a conference room/meeting room renovated in his honor at the school. Among those on hand for the official unveiling of the room Tuesday were Jane Hale, the school’s Parent-Teacher Organization president, and Union City Director of Schools Gary Houston, who presented Boykin with a framed print of newspaper articles marking his selection as last year’s Pride of Obion County. The framed picture will hang in the newly-renovated room. The school previously did not have a room that could be used as a conference room and Mrs. Hale and assistant principal René Flood came up with the idea to remedy the problem. The renovation of a room previously used as storage was completed with the aid of private donations and with help from the local Lowe’s store. The room was painted and outfitted with new countertops, curtains, interior decorations, artwork, a rug and a refurbished table. “It has really been a blessing,” Boykin said of the new room.
