Lowndes County - In the midst of rapid growth in the area, the Lowndes County Board of Education broke ground Friday on a school complex.

The complex off Bemiss Road will be home to the county's newest elementary, middle and high schools.

School administrators say that area is currently home to the largest student population.

The new schools will ease overcrowding.

"Both Lowndes and Hahira Middle Schools are exceeding the populations that they were designed to handle, much more so then the elementary and the high school. So this is an urgent need," says Superintendent Steve Smith.

Pine Grove Middle School will open first in 2009.

The elementary school is scheduled to open the following year.

The high school is slated to open by 2015.
