The EVSC Board of School Trustees approved the purchase of property in northern Vanderburgh County to prepare for a continuing population growth in the area. The 135.1 acre property currently serves as Eagle Valley Golf Course.
“The Brinker family, who are long-time supporters of our schools and the community, approached us with this opportunity,” said EVSC Superintendent David Smith. ”By purchasing this property, it will put us in a position to meet the demands of future growth in this area of Vanderburgh County.”
Smith went on to commend the school board for having “the vision to purchase property for a new school 20 years ago, which is the site of the new McCutchanville Elementary School. This Eagle Valley property is adjacent to our new McCutchanville Elementary School property, so it makes perfect sense to obtain this property for future needs. Our Board understands their responsibility to prepare our school corporation to meet the demands of this popular residential area in the next decade.”
