Wildcat nation will be full of pride at Citronelle High School after students walk into a new school starting a new year, it’s the reveal everyone has been waiting for.
“It’s been long haul, and we made it with hard work, a lot of over time, and a lot of cooperation even from the community,” says Tommy Sheffield, Executive Manager of Operations.
18 months of blue prints, designs and construction…and it didn’t come with a cheap price tag.
“It’s overwhelming building a 27 million dollar high school in 18 months in a community,” says Sheffield.
Once students fill desks they will be in a state of the art classroom.
“You’ve got to be able to use and function through a computer system, so the more they can get in tune with the technology side, the easier their life is going to be,” says Thomas Cotton, Assistant Project Manager.
The media center is just as state of the art complete with chairs that allow a student to recharge electronic devices.
“It’s going to have your smart phone devices, your lap top devices so it’s a one stop collaboration, recharge, study,” says Sheffield.
Making a school once behind in technology making the grade.
