CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- A week ago, vandals trashed a rec center for after school programs. 

Leaders reopened the Westside Rec Center Wednesday, for the first day of school.

Last week, vandals tore out drinking fountains, busted windows and ripped out air conditioning units.

Thanks to several partnerships, it was all repaired.

"We're ready. We're rocking and rolling. We're ready to get started today," says Solomon McGehee, program director. "It's really good to see partnerships come together like we did that week and get this building prepared and realize that the bigger picture was the children."

Police have not named any suspects.

Leader say surveillance cameras may be installed soon.
