On Monday the Pella School Board selected a Facility Architect. There were three firms considered by the district, RDG, Neumann-Monson, and FRK. Pella School District Superintendent Greg Ebeling said that choosing between the top contenders RDG and Neumann-Monson was difficult because they both were such good options. The school board voted to hire Neumann-Monson as the 10 year Facility Planning Architect for the Pella School District. The firm is based out of Des Moines.
