Luján Announces Almost $60 Million For Holloman Elementary And Middle Schools On Holloman Air Force Base
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) announced $59,610,471 to the Alamogordo School District to continue construction of the Holloman Elementary and Middle Schools on Holloman Air Force Base. Once finished, Holloman Elementary School will be able to educate up to 600 students and up to 312 students at Holloman Middle School. This funding will be awarded through the Department of Defense’s Public Schools on Military Installations (PSMI) program.
In August 2022, Senator Luján visited with the 49th Air Wing Commander to discuss the capabilities and mission sets are Holloman. During that visit, the Senator discussed the infrastructure needs of the schools on Holloman Air Force Base. Last December, Senator Luján delivered over $273 million in investments for 146 local projects across New Mexico through the Omnibus Spending Bill that President Biden signed into law.
“For too long, service members have had to consider whether to geographically separate from their families to accept an assignment at Holloman. The nearly $60 million to the Alamogordo School District from DoD will not only vastly improve the lives of these children and set them up for future success, but will provide peace of mind to the airmen and airwomen living at Holloman. As a member of the HELP Committee, I’ve prioritized investments in our children and the teachers that support their learning, and will continue to do so,” said Senator Luján.
