Students at one South Georgia school are walking the halls of a new science and media center, thanks to a donation from an area physician.

Today, the Deerfield-Windsor School held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new John S. Inman, Jr. Science and Media Center at the upper campus.

The building has six science classrooms and laboratories, a lecture hall, media center and administrative offices.

The school was able to complete the project thanks to a 1.5 million dollar donation from Dr. and Mrs. John S. Inman, Jr.

Inman says, "Deerfield has always been an extra special, good school, and I have told a lot of my patients and children that if you want to send your children to college, you better send them to Deerfield. "

The total cost for the new building was 3.2 million dollars. The school also held another ribbon cutting ceremony at its lower campus where a new cafeteria and multiplex building was recently completed.
