Garnett Elementary School

Matt Godinez grew up ?on the wrong side of town? in Chanute. Now, as executive director of the Chanute Regional Development Authority, Godinez understands how school facilities impact a community. 

?The cohesiveness has been great,? Godinez said of Chanute?s transitioning from four elementary schools to a single site. ?I?ve seen a lot more kids coming together and it evens the playing field, no matter what part of town you are from.?

That applies to the business community, too, he said.
