Dreams are what life is made of and the students at KIPP have seen one of them come true with the completion of the gymnasium.

Several hundred friends and supporters of KIPP turned out Saturday afternoon for the ribbon cutting ceremony inside the spacious gymnasium that still has that freshly completed lacquer finish and glossy appearance.

After Chalk Mitchell, president of the KIPP Delta Board of Directors and local attorney, welcomed the large turnout, one my one a representative from the classes of 2010-2010 addressed the crowd.
