[PHOTOS] New Winterboro school opens for students Wednesday


WINTERBORO, Ala. – The roughly $19 million Winterboro opened its doors for Winterboro High School and Sycamore Elementary School students this morning.

The building project, that combined SES and WHS, lasted two years and at the end of the process, students have a state-of-the-art school to learn and grow in.

“We had a smooth opening this morning,” said Kelvin Cunningham. Cunningham is the Dir. of Operations for Talladega County Board of Education. “Traffic and dropoff was very smooth this morning.”

In total, 340 high school students and 180 elementary students call the new 125,000 square-feet school home.

Cunningham was excited for the students first day of class in the new facility. “It features wider halls which were needed, and a tornado shelter,” he said. “That would be the unique feature that we have at this school. We’re also excited for the updated technology and the new media center.”

Cunningham said teachers began the transition, with the help of central office staff, in the middle of December which created a smooth start to the new semester.

“They handled it well, and we had a big team working to make sure everything was handled well.”
