Dozens of former and current staff, students and community members recently gathered to celebrate the dedication of the new L. F. Smith Elementary campus. 

The event included refreshments, comments by current principal Cathy Danna, special performances by the school choir and building tours.

Although the building originally opened in August 2017, the dedication ceremony was delayed due to a burst pipe that partially flooded the first floor and then again in 2018 by Hurricane Harvey.

Danna said that although the dedication ceremony has been delayed, it was still important for the campus to come together with the community to celebrate.  

“L.F. Smith is a campus that is rich with history and traditions. We always want to appreciate where we came from because we made some great memories in our old building,” said Danna. “While the old building served us well for 60 years, we look forward to all the great memories we will make in the future here.”

In addition to the public dedication ceremony, the campus welcomed the Pasadena ISD Board of Trustees, Superintendent of Schools Dr. DeeAnn Powell and district administrators for a private luncheon and tour of the campus.
