The West Plains R-7 Bridges program celebrated its recent move with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new location, 1013 N. College St. South Central Career Center carpentry students from 13 area schools worked on construction for the new space, said SCCC Director Jim Laughary. Bridges Director Cyndi Wright said it is much larger than the previous location on the West Plains High School campus, and has a second floor for storage. The Bridges program is a West Plains School District project. It is a community-based organization designed to help meet students' needs in the West Plains School District and the surrounding rural schools, leading to children being able to focus on their education.
