More than 100 people visited the Liberty County Board of Education’s new central office dedication Monday in an event that included a tour of the adjoining pre-K center.
Local education luminaries, including veteran board chair Barney Rocker and longtime principal Lafayne May, attended along with the general public and were greeted by Interim Superintendent Harley Grove and Lily Baker, school board chairwoman.
Tours started in the atrium and Deputy Superintendent Dr. Cheryl Conley showed visitors the boardroom and handed them off to teams of employees who guided groups through the building.
Even as the tours went on, the building fulfilled its working function. Required state training was being delivered electronically to a staff group in a meeting room on the second floor.
Escorted to the adjoining pre-K ccenter by ROTC cadets, visitors were greeted by a beaming Dr. Shelby Bush who showed them the colorful new facilities for the board’s youngest students.
The pre-K center occupies the space of the former Hinesville Middle School and structural elements of the old school were utilized in the new center.
