WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Decades-old portions of Waynesboro Area Senior High School are being renovated in the final stages of a $46 million construction project formally launched in January 2007.
The old gymnasium has been converted into two floors of classrooms, Maintenance Supervisor Jeff Adams said. The top floor opened for classes in the second semester, while electrical and duct work is preparing the bottom floor for technology education space, he said.
The new cafeteria opened when students returned from their winter break. It hosted the 13th annual Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce Business Expo and the Lions Club fundraising breakfast on Saturday.
"The finished product is going to be more than admirable, something for the community to be proud of," Adams said.
Business Administrator Caroline Dean said she will talk to the Waynesboro Area School Board about the project's financing during budget workshops this spring. The board on Tuesday requested that she bring financial adviser Public Financial Management and architect EI Associates to a meeting.
