Guam - After 10 years of being condemned from the wrath of Supertyphoon Pongsona, the Inarajan Community Center restoration kicks-off thanks to $800,000 in HOT bond money. At this morning's ceremony, artist and long-time Inarajan resident Judy Flores recalls her sister attending the center, which was used as a school where classrooms were divided by screens and blackboards.
She said, "At that time it still had an open concept. You think the teaching concept of open classrooms where teachers rotated is no...back then they had the ifit wood floor that's was cleaned by the students and the teachers. It was discipline or voluntary, I'm not sure which."
The original building was built and designed by the U.S. Navy in 1925.
