LHS Science Wing: Liberty High School students will soon be using their newly renovated science classrooms and laboratories. Liberty ISD trustees toured the nearly completed science wing last Tuesday.  LISD Board President Brandon Smith, himself a medical professional, said he was pleased with both what he saw on the tour and what it means for Liberty students. The construction company Collier Construction of Brenham has been renovating existing space into six new science rooms and five lab areas. Their bid came in at $1.369 million. LISD Director of Maintenance and Operations Robert Ward said LHS teachers and students will be in their new science classrooms and labs in a matter of days.
