Old high school demolished
Demolition of the old Neshoba Central High School began last week and is scheduled to be completed by the end of July.
McKee Construction, Inc. of Philadelphia, which specializes in demolition and excavation, was awarded the $695,350 contract earlier this year.
The work began with asbestos removal when school let out in May.
The building, which housed both the high school and junior high at one time, was constructed in 1963.
Bricks from the demolition will be used to construct a monument similar to the school’s previous monument featuring two blue rockets.
The new high school, completed in 2017, was part of an initial overall $23.4 million project approved by voters in August 2015.
