Facility improvements have ground breaking
By Sid Riley
The illustrious group shown struggling to throw the first shovels full of dirt for the beginning of construction of several needed facility improvements at the sports complex of Graceville High were there for the ground breaking ceremony on Tuesday afternoon. The $641,715 improvement project includes two new locker rooms totaling 2856 sq. ft., an addition to the existing weight room of 720 sq.ft., and a much needed 720 ft. new restroom facility for public use during sports events.
The architectural work will be performed by Paul Donofro and Associates, and the construction will be by Floridian Construction of Destin.
After introductions by Stewart Wiggins, Lee Miller expressed the pleasure of the administrators and the school board in seeing this needed project started. He gave former School Superintendent, Danny Sims, who was also at the ceremony, recognition for the approval and planning for this project during his term as Superintendent.
