Residents of Hico are seeking help in making what remains of Hico Elementary School into a community center.
“There’s no sense of community anymore,” said Vicki Colvin, coordinator of the Hico Citizens Association. “No one knows their neighbors …This might be a great opportunity to bring people back together.”
The original Hico School was built in the early 1950s. During the 2012-13 school year, the decision was made to integrate elementary and middle school students at Hico to Dubach School and high school students to Ruston and Simsboro High Schools.
