West, Bobby Ray schools first in line for improvements
Building C at Bobby Ray Elementary was built in 1962. The Board of Education is considering renovation projects to Bobby Ray and West Elementary and hopes the Warren County Commission can help with funding.
Students at West Elementary and Bobby Ray Elementary will soon be seeing improvements as the Board of Education plans to move ahead with projects at those two schools as part of future building projects.“Bobby Ray and West take priority because they have structures that are 50 years old,” said Director of Schools Bobby Cox in discussing the building plans. “The structures are good but we need to update them.”The plan to work on Bobby Ray and West first comes as part of the school system’s $10 million plan to update the county’s schools. The initiative comes on the heels of building projects including a large expansion of Dibrell School, new schools at Centertown and Morrison, a fieldhouse at Warren County High School, a major upgrade and addition at Irving College, and a revamp of the gym at Bobby Ray.The buildings at Bobby Ray, all of which are in need of upgrades, are all over 40 years old.
