The Max Colley Jr. Performing Arts Center has been open since December 1998. In December of 2010 it was re-named as The Max Colley Jr. Performing Arts Center in honor of our retired Band director Max Colley Jr. for his endless dedication, love, and respect that he portrayed to the students and staff of Northview.
