Valdosta Middle School nears completion

December 11, 2002

Valdosta - Students and teachers in Valdosta will start the new year in a brand new, state of the art school.

The new Valdosta Middle School, under construction since July 2001, will finally be finished by the second week in January. It's a 152,000 square foot, 12.3 million dollar school funded by sales taxes.

"This school has classrooms bigger than most, an advanced security system, and a great deal of advanced technology for the students to use," said Martin Roesch, VMS Principal.

The school board avoided the cost of buying property by building the new school on the the same lot as the old middle school. After students and teachers move into the new school, the old building will be demolished.
