High School in Missouri Switches to LEDs
As the students relax for the holiday break, the maintenance crew at Nixa high got busy switching their old light bulbs with new and efficient LED bulbs.
NIXA, Mo. -- The moment students left the halls of Nixa high for winter break, the maintenance crew got to work."As soon as the kids leave for winter break that's the busiest time of year for our facilities. The floors get buffed, the walls are deep cleaned," General Manager of Facilities Robert Klug said. And the light bulbs get replaced.

The old bulbs required frequent changing."It was pretty much a maintenance nightmare as far as up-keep, general maintenance to the fixture itself," Asst. Director of Facilities Brandon Thomas said.
