The new gymnasium will seat 650 fans, has a full regulation court for basketball and volleyball and was designed especially for the Eagle’s by students, staff, and the community. The gym will feature a new state of the art sound system and media wall that will help fans get up close and personal to the action.
“I am so excited to unveil this project to our students and community. Everyone is invited to come spend the afternoon with us, enjoy the day and some food from our newly constructed concession stand. You can get in on the action and play some ball or set back and enjoy watching others play,” she added.
“I want to especially thank our Board of Education members, the CTE students and staff who worked hard on this project, as well as special donors Mid-State Automotive, the Braxton County Rotary, and an anonymous donor,” Dr. Burge-Tetrick concluded.
