Kim Shanks, left, Rick Scott and Holly Cline, Newkirk Main Street President, recently executed a contract with Rick Scott Construction to build the Kay County Amphitheater. A fundraising campaign was completed during the month of March, and generous donors from all over the country came together to celebrate the power of philanthropy and the excitement of this new venue. The Kay County Amphitheater will be housed at Ninth and Main and will be a space for class reunions and concerts as well as providing an outdoor venue for students to perform and perfect their skills. Groundbreaking is scheduled for May, with a ribbon cutting at the new venue in the fall.
