THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The students at Thomas County Central High School were excited to see their newly renovated cafeteria.

It's part of a $2.2 million sales tax project.  Not only do students have more choices at lunch, they have a lot more space.  The old room had seating for 300. Now, it's twice that size.

Karen Green, Nutrition Director for Thomas County Schools said, "We had 4 lunch periods but now we have 3.  We have 1600 children so now we have about 500-600 children per lunch period that we can seat."  And they even have some room to grow.

The second part of the SPLOST project, a new media center, will be finished in about a month.
