The New Leonard Scarcella Administration Building Now Open at Stafford MSD

The Stafford Municipal School District Board of Trustees voted unanimously in favor of renaming the new administration building in honor of the late Mayor Leonard Scarcella after his journey as the country’s longest serving mayor ended too soon.

“It’s an honor to be able to recognize an individual who played such an important role in the establishment and even the continued success of our school district,” stated Stafford MSD Board President Christopher Caldwell. “Naming an administration building after him is just a small token of our gratitude.”

District administrators moved into the new office space earlier this summer and have been making good use of the two-story building. The new addition is part of the $62-million bond program that passed in November 2017, and includes offices, training and conference rooms, as well as a board room for future meetings. The facility also includes a memorabilia wall where city and district history will be placed on display, in addition to a 3D model of the entire complex.

The district has plans for a ribbon cutting event and virtual campus building tours on the horizon, but these are being adjusted due to the pandemic and to accommodate community participation.
