JHS multi-purpose building closer to reality

The Chilton County Board of Education agreed Tuesday to move forward with adding a building to Jemison High School.

Sen. Cam Ward recently awarded the school a $25,000 state grant to build a multi-purpose building for the school.

Circuit Clerk Glenn McGriff, Principal Alan Thompson and Wayne Howell represented Jemison at the meeting.

“The building is going to have a batting cage and is going to be a place where cheerleaders or whoever can enjoy,” said McGriff. “We are asking for permission to move forward.”

The next step is to get with an architect to certify the building, and then send it to the Alabama Building Commission, said Howell.

“It has to go to the Alabama Building Commission before they can approve the grant,” he said.

In other business, the board decided to discuss ongoing renovations at Jemison Middle School at a later date so more information can be gathered and studied.

The board also increased the system’s mileage rate to 51 cents per mile, amidst rising fuel prices and a memo from the state comptroller’s office.
