Valle Crucis School is breaking new ground on their new School Facility
A groundbreaking ceremony for the new Valle Crucis School was held at the school’s new property, about a third of a mile from the current school site.
Members of the Watauga County Board of Education, Watauga County Commissioners, architects, construction crew and others were on hand to turn over the first shovel of ground at the site which will house the new school. WCS Superintendent Scott Elliott thanked the board members and others for the many ways he said they’d helped further the project over the years. He said he was proud to be able to take part in the groundbreaking after so many years of effort to get a new school built. “Thank you so much to all of you who have worked so hard to make the construction of a new school in Valle Crucis a possibility,'' Elliott said. “We’ve come a long way to get to this point, and I am so proud to have worked alongside the school board, county commissioners and so many others to give the students and teachers in Valle Crucis the school building that they deserve.” A second groundbreaking ceremony was held later in the day for school staff, teachers and students.
