HEBRON — Sometimes a close defeat is more difficult than getting blown out by a large margin.
That was the response of Thayer Central Superintendent Drew Harris following the decision of Thayer Central patrons to vote down multimillion-dollar bond issues for expansions and renovations on its main campus here.
Proposition A, estimated to cost $11.1 million, would have included the consolidation of all grades within the district’s intermediate and junior-senior high buildings at the 900 block of Eads Avenue in Hebron.
The proposed project included a 1,200-seat competition gymnasium constructed between the high school and intermediate buildings. It would have included locker rooms, a wrestling room and renovations to the existing buildings.
