Many stage productions, musical events, concerts, speakers and public gatherings have been held at the R. Wesley Carlson Auditorium at Humboldt High School but after 40 years with some minor improvements, some major updating is needed, Humboldt School Superintendent Jim Murray said. He said the school will try to fundraise for the estimated $670,000 needed for the project. Humboldt Independent file photo by Kent Thompson.

R. Wesley Carlson Auditorium at Humboldt High School is 40 years old and in need of improvements.
During the regular monthly meeting of the Humboldt Board of Education Monday night, May 15, Humboldt School Superintendent Jim Murray unveiled plans generated from a recent committee meeting and begin fundraising for the project.
“The one facility area that we did not hit with our bond issue was the high school auditorium. The high school auditorium is functional and the sound system is of good quality, but it does need some updates and improvements,” Murray said.
Exterior and interior work is expected to cost $672,000, including contingencies.
“This is a project we are going to fundraise for. We are going to start gauging community interest almost like the sports facility when folks who are really interested in improving it went out and raised donations,” Murray said.
