Two new schools in Dougherty County

August 5, 2002

There are two new schools in Albany this year.

Albany Middle and Robert Cross Middle Magnet School were filled with parents, students and staff excited about going to school in new digs - even if everything's not completed.

"This facility is so outstanding that everybody's just excited about being here," says Albany Middle principal William Webb.

The same is true at Robert Cross Middle where principal Holly Thursby says, "Everybody's in place, doing their job. Kids are as excited as we are to be in this building. Couldn't ask for things to be going any better."

The gymnasiums at both schools still aren't finished and the extensive paving project at Robert Cross is expected to be finished by mid-week.
