BONHAM, TX -- Residents in Bonham approved a $7 million school bond Saturday.

Bonham Superintendent Sonny Cruse says the bond will pay for renovations at I.W. Evans Intermediate School.
The money will build eight new classrooms, a bigger gym, and updated facilities. Cruse said the bond means higher taxes, with the average homeowner paying an additional $2.33 per month.
A $25 million bond was voted down twice last year.
