When we embarked on developing a five-year strategic plan for our community, our Town Council was passionately committed to and downright adamant about making sure that education for residents of all ages would be a perennial top priority.
While some may argue that school business and municipal business are separate issues, the fact is they are inextricably linked.
Our Council knew that a keen focus on education access and opportunity would help Superior become an even stronger, more innovative and resilient community and economy.
We fully embraced the mindset that all Superiorites — those here today and those who will come in the future — should have pathways to increasing educational attainment. Lifelong learning begins at birth and continues throughout each stage of one’s life.
Our steadfast commitment to education is a cornerstone of our multigenerational center, which will be housed at the original Superior High School.
Our new facility will feature a makerspace and skilled job training facility. It will host programs for entrepreneurial development while also creating space for physical fitness classes such as yoga and dance.
We look forward to implementing a wide variety of classes for continuing education and working alongside our local community colleges and universities to offer programs for residents of Superior and the greater Copper Corridor region.
A one-stop shop for personal fitness, learning and business development will be housed in this one-of-a-kind campus. Not to mention the sense of place and reverence that this historic complex exudes.
Strong communities start with healthy residents and access to quality, lifelong education and learning programs. We are excited to embark on the remodeling of the campus and just as importantly, to begin programming and implementing advanced education and skilled training opportunities.
It is our goal that our library is a place that everyone can come and access materials to help them expand their knowledge, to read for pleasure and perhaps even escape to other worlds!
Educational attainment is achieved both inside and outside of a classroom. So much is learned working alongside our peers and colleagues, learning from one another and sharing our unique perspectives and views of the world.
The Superior multigenerational center will be the hub for these collaborations and connections, and we are committed to
offering programs and services that inspire everyone to pursue their learning aspirations in our community!
