LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

The new Lee County High school multipurpose building will house a community meeting room, 8 classrooms, a special needs students room, a CSI Service lab, and computer lab.  

But for the more than 200 students that dual enroll in college courses at Georgia Southwestern State or Albany State University, they will be able to stay and take classes in the large lecture hall.

"So instead of them having to travel to the college, 30 to 45 minutes away, the professor will come here. Be able to meet here in this lecture hall. It gives them a true college experience," said Lee County High School Principal Karen Hancock.

There will be an open house for the community to tour the new multipurpose building July 23rd through the 25th.

The building also includes a large space specifically for the Lee County High sports teams.
