New playground, performing arts center unveiled at Beaumont Magnet Academy

Local News

Beaumont Magnet Academy in Knox County officially unveiled its new playground and outdoor performing arts center on Tuesday, after months of work.

The new space allows the students to participate in student performances outside and connect the arts with outdoor education.

“It really is an inspiring space for our students where they get to interact with things they’re already learning about and doing inside our school,” said teacher Cheryl Burchett.

The school was awarded a $100,000 grant last year from Farmer’s Insurance to make this happen.
