Combs Performing Arts Center officially named!

At the April 11th Governing Board Meeting, the Combs Performing Arts Center (CPAC) was voted on and approved for the bond approved facility. Shelly Hargis, Governing Board President, shared, “I am excited for our students and our community to benefit from a fully functioning performing arts building. The CPAC will give our programs the venue to raise their talents to a new level. The new building will also give our San Tan Valley residents an opportunity to showcase their programs at home and not have to travel to neighboring districts.”
