Remodeling of the Strawberry Plains Campus’ Randy and Jenny Boyd Building to accommodate the new Career Magnet Academy at Pellissippi State has earned Community Tectonics Architects an award at the Tennessee School Board Association’s annual convention. The Academy began offering classes this semester.

Community Tectonics was a winner in three divisions of the School of the Year Awards, including second place in the Remodeling/Renovation Division—the award the firm earned for work on the Career Magnet Academy.

The Career Magnet Academy at Pellissippi State is the result of a groundbreaking partnership with Knox County Schools. The high school gives students an opportunity to pursue an education in four career/technical areas, or “clusters”: advanced manufacturing, sustainable living, homeland security and teacher preparation.
