Groundbreaking set for Coosa High
Groundbreaking set for Wednesday morning for new Coosa High
Posted on 05/13/2014
siteThe groundbreaking ceremony for the new Coosa High School will be held on Wednesday, May 14 at 10:30 p.m. in front of the current Coosa High facility.  Students, parents, faculty, alumni, and the community will gather to turn the first shovels of dirt for the new $32 million facility on the Alabama Highway. 

The groundbreaking ceremony will feature administrators, board members, and community leaders who were instrumental in the SPLOST campaign approved by the voters last November to build the new facility.  Tony McIntosh, co-chair of the Citizens for Better Schools committee, and Danny Wade, Coosa area parent representative on the committee, will speak at the ceremony. 

The Coosa High band is also scheduled to perform during the ceremony on Wednesday morning.  Representatives from the elementary feeder schools will be at the event to help turn the first shovels of dirt to begin the Coosa High project. 

The project will be constructed in phases with the academic building being the first section scheduled for completion in late 2015.  The plan is to move students into the main building when they return from Christmas break in January 2016.  The old building will then be torn down so the rest of the high school complex can be completed.   The public is invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony.
