Jerry Allen Elementary, originally Lackland City Elementary, is one of 79 elementary schools in Northside Independent School District. KNRG Architects designed a renovation and addition for the existing library. The existing library received a complete renovation and an addition of 767 sq. ft. Utilizing the school motto, “You must Believe to Achieve,” the finished library incorporated a native Hill Country Texas themed setting encouraging young readers to open their minds to achieve their goals. KNRG worked closely with the contractors and the district to finish the project on schedule for students to enjoy at the start of a new school year.
