In a groundbreaking event this morning, the new UTRGV Early College High School ceremonially began construction and highlighted the partnership between the city, university, and school district.
A beginning phase of a major project between the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District, and the City of Harlingen.
The City of Harlingen donating the 6.3 acres of land worth approximately 2.5 million dollars to UTRGV and HCISD who both invested 8 million each in matching funds to replace the current ECHS campus on Pecan street.
