USDA presents $3.5M to Baconton for new school

The Baconton Blazers Booster Club celebrated with students this week on their next big project.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Division gave a check for over $3.5 million to the community to build a new school. The project allows the school to grow and better accommodate over 700 students and includes both direct and guaranteed community facility funding. USDA State Director Stone Workman says the two-year project has taken a lot of hard work.

The project includes 32 classrooms, a cafeteria, driveway and parking lots.
