ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Lee County's new Twin Oaks Elementary School held its official dedication Wednesday morning with some help from Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle.

Third through fifth graders shook the Lt. Governor's hand and waived their flags in support. The 14.5 million dollar school was constructed using state money and local sales tax dollars. The school offers students a way to learn using new technology in each classroom.

"We have a science lab which is unusual for an elementary school and the kids have loved it, the teachers have loved it they've put it to a lot of use already. We have state of the art technology in all of our classrooms projection system and smart board capabilities," said Dr. Jason Miller, Twin Oaks Principal.

Cagle stressed the importance of staying focused in school telling students that they're the future doctors, nurses, and Lt. Governor's in Georgia. Twin Oaks has made Adequate Yearly Progress for five consecutive years.
