South Cobb High School held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday, Jan. 3 to open and dedicate its brand new cafeteria! The cafeteria construction and hallway additions were the first phase of an $18.1 million SPLOST III campus renovation project.
On hand for the celebration were the entire SCHS staff, Superintendent Fred Sanderson, Deputy Superintendent Dr. Steve Constantino, Director of Human Resources Dr. Donald Dunnigan, Board of Education members Lynnda Eagle, David Morgan and David Banks; state representative Alisha Thomas-Morgan and former SCHS administrators Dr. Mike Johnson, Larry Hoover and Benny Farmer.
The South Cobb Student Government Officers hosted the event, serving the inaugural meal to SCHS staff and special guests.
This phase of the SCHS SPLOST project began at the end of the 2009-10 school year and was completed on time Dec. 10. The new, $4 million dollar cafeteria is a source of pride for South Cobb High school and the south Cobb Community.
After an entire semester without a cafeteria, South Cobb students finally got to enjoy the new dining space on their first day back from the holiday break.
