Sharene Dixon's "3 Cs"
03/19/2021

Sam Houston High School principal Sharene Dixon can't say enough about Bond 2016 and what it has done for her campus and the east side community. 

Her students come to school with pride, and when they visit campuses they no longer compare their school with the others because they, too, have a facility that is modern, updated and conducive to learning.

"The school is absolutely beautiful," Dixon said.

Sam Houston CafeteriaAccording to Dixon, there are three notable "Cs" marked by the Bond 2016 program Sam Houston: the new cafeteria, the updated classrooms, and the connectivity her students have to technology to complete their studies.

"We are one of the most modern schools now," Dixon said.

"Sam Houston has a very strong alumni following. We opened it up for all our alumni. They were in awe of how it looks now."

One other "C" that Dixon pointed to is the collaboration that students are able to take part in. Dixon thinks of it as a college-like experience for her students because they are in a space where collaboration and modern learning environments meet.

Sam Houston classroomThe scope of work at Sam Houston's $33 million project included renovations and upgrades to general learning classroom spaces, science and special education classrooms, restrooms, cafeteria and kitchen, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, plumbing and electrical, technology infrastructure, fire sprinkler systems, special needs accessibility in entryways, as well as roofing, building exterior and site improvements. 

"One of our mantras is 'there's power in you.' The building finally matches what our students are capable of doing," she said.

Science classrooms, as well as the gym, are expected to be included in the upcoming Bond 2020 program.
