A dedication ceremony featuring many local dignitaries was held recently for the new Red Bank Middle School.
“This has been a dream of the Red Bank community for years,” principal John Pierce said in regards to the new school.
The 160,000-square-foot, nearly $30 million building took around two and a half years to design and construct.
Rick Smith, superintendent of Hamilton County Schools, said the project was unique in that it required such a collaborative effort between Hamilton County Schools, the Hamilton County Commission and the city of Red Bank.
“We even had to work with the U.S. Department of Interior to make this project a reality,” Smith said. “It’s very much something I take a great deal of pride in.”
