The demolition of the 81-year old Lyerly Gym is underway. The new Lyerly gymnasium will be a state of the art facility complete with air conditioning, a weight training area, a girls and boys changing room and coaches offices. In addition the gym will connect to the school, rather than forcing outdoor walks to the main school building. The contract with RKR Construction in the amount of $3,922,986 will be paid for with the last Special Purpose Local Option Sales (SPLOST) bond money.
The new gym is scheduled to be open at the beginning of 2018.
