Completion of Farragut’s new multi-purpose performing arts building, DeSeta Hall, has surprisingly little to do with floor plans, concrete or steel to the people who have invested in its construction. It’s all about the students who will benefit from the Academy’s state-of-the-art facility once the project is finished in the fall of 2019.
“Everything’s running on schedule and that’s great news for our students,” said Ed DeSeta, Farragut Class of 1967 and donor to the project whose family name will adorn the new building.
Construction is moving the way it is supposed to, and it is anticipated on schedule. Interior work continues. Irrigation and sod will be installed around the new building. Duke Energy installed new lighting. Asphalt is also being poured on the new parking lot. Auditorium seating is being put into place.
“True completion, however, occurs when our students begin using it next fall,” said Tony Sloan, Farragut’s Chief Development Officer.
There’s an opportunity for a sneak preview of the massive new structure when the Farragut Parents’ Group hosts their fundraising gala there, “Reach for the Stars” held on Saturday, April 6, 2019. The event will feature exciting performances by speed painter Michael Israel.
Meanwhile, fundraising will continue throughout the spring and summer with a campaign completion celebration scheduled for October. Funds are still needed for interior finishing, furnishings, and equipment. There are a number of naming opportunities still available.
