- West Ottawa Harbor Lights Middle School
Renovation part of school district's commitment
Custer was selected to provide furniture solutions for one of West Ottawa School District’s recently completed renovation projects as part of its larger efforts to update more than a half a dozen education facilities in 2022.
Harbor Lights Middle School received renovations to its entryway, cafeteria, and classrooms.
Updates to eighteen classrooms on the south end of the building were completed in phase one completions as the 22-23 school year approached.
Returning students were able to utilize those classrooms with new furniture and technology in the fall.
Our team, alongside GMB Architecture + Engineering, continued to work towards project completion on the north end of the building throughout the school year.
The bond approvals that funded these educational enhancements was a response to the district’s declining enrollment.
“We’ve been really aggressive, but we want to continue to meet the commitments we made to our community. We continue to be thankful for a very supportive community,” said Jeff Malloch, WOPS assistant superintendent for business services in a statement to the Holland Sentinel.
West Ottawa is the second-largest school district in Ottawa County and the sixth-largest in Kent and Ottawa counties.
Custer is proud to have the opportunity to partner with the Holland community in this larger effort to improve learning experiences for students throughout the community.
