Hiatt Middle School began Project Encore as an initiative to raise funds and involve community members to upgrade the auditorium, built in 1926, for use by both students and the neighborhood. The school has been working with the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute, which has adopted Project Encore as one of its community projects.

“This project has been a rallying point for our school, and has received great support from our neighborhood and people throughout the community,” said Hiatt principal Joy Wiebers.

Donors for the project included Lowe’s Home Improvement and the W.T. and Edna M. Dahl Trust.
