RED OAK — Nash County Public Schools held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Red Oak Elementary School on Wednesday. 

The new school will be located behind what is currently Red Oak Elementary School and will merge Cedar Grove, Red Oak and Swift Creek elementary schools into a combined facility that district adminstrators describe as state-of-the-art.

The new Red Oak Elementary School will consist of an 87,297-square -foot, single-story building equipped with administrative areas, media center, cafeteria, classrooms and support and storage spaces as well as a 1,896-square-foot addition to the existing gymnasium. The project will also include partial renovation to the existing 12,311-square-foot gymnasium building.

Nash County Board of Education and Nash County Board of Commissioners members attended the ceremonial groundbreaking, along with Nash County Public Schools administrators and staff, students representing the three merging elementary schools, Oakley Collier Architect representatives and numerous community members.

School board Chairman Franklin Lamm of Spring Hope, who represents District 3, and county commissioners’ Chairman Robbie Davis shared brief remarks. The highlight of the ceremony was students Aaliyah Wheeling, Hannah Brown, Ke’Niya and Ke’Monta Lynch, Ben Alvarez and Mallori Mason digging their shovels into the dirt to officially “break ground” on the project.
