On Friday, September 29th, Amherst County Public Schools broke ground on their $32 million high school project. The project includes major upgrades to the school. Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates, lawmakers, staff members, and county representatives all gathered together, to celebrate the upgrades officially starting.
Amherst County Public Schools Superintendent William Wells said the school is now getting a much needed upgrade, especially to the auditorium. In addition, some of the improvements include more space for career technical education, bathrooms, and a new cafeteria. Dr. Wells said the expansion is about the students, staff, and community.
“Our objective when we were planning this was what can we do to make this not only good for our students but our community,” Wells said.
