A big day for one Western Kansas community, as Garden City breaks ground on a brand new high school.
The $92.5 million dollar facility will be funded by taxpayers after a bond issue passed in last year's November election. The new high school will reduce crowding, enhance security, and give students a better learning environment.
"It is a big day for the city of garden city in that this facility will accomdate the educational needs for high school students for 20, 30, 40 years," says Dr. Rick Atha, Garden City superintendent.
Construction on the new building begins in March. The school is expected to be ready in the fall of 2012.
