THIS IS THE NEW look for Whigham Elementary School. The architectural rendering shows the proposed new facade as well as a new covered loading area for students to board buses. In the background is the hallway that has been enclosed to connect the wings and auditorium.
Continuing renovations at Whigham Elementary School include a new facade and a covered loading area for students to get onto buses at the front of the school.
Grady County Schools superintendent Dr. Kermit Gilliard said this week he is pleased with the progress being made on the project.
Preceding the facade phase was the enclosure of a hallway connecting the classroom wings with the auditorium.
According to the superintendent, next summer’s renovations of the primary and middle grades hallways will begin, which will include new flooring, new lighting, new ceiling grids, fresh paint and more.
Barber Construction of Moultrie is the contractor for the Whigham project and it was designed by architect Raymond C. Finger, who also designed the Southside Elementary School project as well as the renovation of the school’s historic auditorium.
“We believe the Whigham community will be pleased with what all we are doing at Whigham School. I’m looking forward to seeing it completed,” Dr. Gilliard said.
