Monroe High is a Center of Excellence

August 17, 2006

Albany - - An Albany high school is now doing more to prepare students for a future in science.

Monroe High School is now a Pre-engineering and technology Center of Excellence.

Congressman Sanford Bishop toured the new facility this afternoon. School administrators say it will help students feel a little better about their working environment.  

"Our students we believe deserve the best. We visited other such schools in North Georgia and we said our students deserve the best and our board members and superintendent felt the same way, thus we're here," says Principal Deloris Spears.

The school plans to partner with Albany State University's NASA program, which Bishop's office helped fund.
