Groundbreaking Planned For New SWHS Gym

This Tuesday, November 26, Wayne County Public Schools will hold a groundbreaking event for the new Southern Wayne High gym at 1:45 PM.

“The Wayne County Board of Education and Board of Commissioners are excited to officially break ground on this $6.4 million competition gym,” states Dr. Michael Dunsmore, WCPS Superintendent. “As I have shared before, constructing a competition gym, similar to what can be found on other high school campuses around our county, has been long needed for the Southern Wayne High School community. We look forward to being able to provide the school with a state of the art facility that offers more locker room space to students and athletes, while at the same time ensuring visitors have access to modern ADA compliant restrooms and bleachers.”

The groundbreaking event is open to the public. Construction is scheduled to be complete by late October 2020.

    What in the world is wrong with you….Poor people deserve a good place for their kids to go learn and play. It is not fair or nice at all to beat up on people because of their financial situation, Be careful how you treat people because your financial situation can change at any given time,, He gives and takes,,You could wind up in the same place they are, besides If you can not say anything nice then JUST SHUT YOUR MOUTH . Happy Thanksgiving

    All well and good but when will Rosewood be getting a new middle school. Just because most of the children at Rosewood have parents who work, not on food stamps and dont live in section 8 housing doesn’t mean they should be hated and forgotten and made to attend a school that’s dilapidated.

    • JT says:

      Got that “I’m better than you” Rosewood mentality on display I see.

    • Waynecountynative says:

      Surely you aren’t suggesting that the children who attend the other schools in Wayne County all have parents who don’t work, are on food stamps, and live in section 8 housing (which you probably don’t understand what is anyway).

    • Really? says:

      My daughter attends Southern Wayne High School and i can assure you I go to work EVERYDAY, I do NOT receive food stamps, and I PAY a home mortgage EVERY MONTH. All schools in Wayne County need attention, but there is no need to be ignorant. Typical Rosewood mentality for sure!

      • Working SW Parent says:

        A lot of these schools in the county should have been torn down years ago. As for the Rosewood mentality its been there for years. Yet people from other districts send their kids to Rosewood… I have no problem with SW since Mr. Smith took over. My kids have no issues there. I am a single (widower) father that works,,,,,
