SHELLMAN, GA (WALB) - Renovations have come a long way at the new charter school in Shellman.
Volunteers have put in more than 1100 hours of work at the SOWEGA STEM Charter School.
They've painted walls in each classroom, installed tile, lighting and put up a new sign.
The headmaster says they remain on schedule to open in September.
"First let me just say thank you to everybody who has pitched in to help because there has been lots of hard work gone into this process," said Joyce Blanton, Headmaster. "People are here at 7 o'clock and 7:30 in the morning and it's late now and they're still here."
Blanton is narrowing down more than 100 teacher applications for 14 jobs.
Students can also apply on a first come first serve basis.
The school is in need of volunteers and donations of furniture and supplies. You can help donate or volunteer by clicking here.
