The contractor will present the keys to the school system and well present them to Myra, Davis said.
After that, at 3 p.m., anyone in the community can tour the building, which has been under construction since 2010. Davis said there are a number of student ambassadors who will help visitors find their way in the new building and through the athletic facilities. You may tour the building until 5 p.m.
The tours wont be guided, but there will be those ambassadors present to help people get to each part of the building, Davis said.
Assistant Director of Schools Mickey Hall said they spent almost $49 million of the $50 million bond issue on the new school. The remaining amount was used to pay for design work for the new Watertown High School and to install secure entrances at the old LHS and other schools.
Hall said the new school will be a great achievement for local government and will be a tool for the future in bringing businesses and new residents to Lebanon and Wilson County.
It shows the board and the Wilson County Commission can work together and show that education is important, Hall said. (The Joint Economic & Community Development Board of Wilson County) already have it on their tour and its a tool to bring more people here.
Hall said a few punch list items are remaining to be completed, and Davis noted teachers have not completely settled into the new school, but said everything is out of the old LHS.
The new school is located at 500 Blue Devil Blvd., off South Hartmann Drive.
