 May Howard Elementary

Originally built in the 1950’s, May Howard is a longstanding community center for the Wilmington Island area.  Cogdell & Mendrala was selected to design a 105,000 square foot replacement structure to better serve the students and faculty.  With a $22 million budget, the 2-story facility houses 46 classrooms, Administrative Spaces, Media Center, and Cafeteria.  A gymnasium with stage was provided to accommodate school and parent functions.
