Roosevelt construction earns state recognition

Associated General Contractors of AmericaThe Roosevelt High School Replacement Project was recently named a 2010 Outstanding Construction Award winner by the Associated General Contractors (AGC) Texas Building Branch. North East ISD was the only school district to receive award recognition in the state-wide competition.

"At North East, we maintain high quality standards for all of our campuses," said Dr. Richard A. Middleton, superintendent of schools. "As new campuses are built, we renovate older campuses. Roosevelt was completely rebuilt while students were still there, and it's a fantastic campus and a great asset for the community."

Roosevelt, located on Walzem Road, originally opened in 1966. The campus has been rebuilt, building by building, through voter-approved bond packages in 1995, 1998, 2003 and 2007. The AGC award was for the 2003 Bond Project efforts. Details and photos of the Roosevelt Replacement Project are available at

"This award recognizes not only the exemplary manner in which this phased project was managed and constructed by the general contractor [Joeris General Contractors], but also the overall quality of the architecture [Garza-Bomberger and Associates] for this facility," said Gary Sullivan, executive director of construction management and engineering.
