Officials break ground on new Ganns Middle Valley Elementary

Hixson, TN (WDEF) –  Hamilton County officials gathered Monday morning to officially break ground for a new school…
    A long time in the making.

    Hamilton County Commissioner Marty Haynes said, "Actually in the ’98-’99 school district decided that this was a school of need, we worked on it, all the commissioners before me, Charlotte Vandergriff, Jim Coppinger, Mitch McClure, were all involved and today’s a culmination of the efforts of, their efforts and the community – the Middle Valley community."
    The new Ganns Middle Valley will have space for 1,000 students.
    It will also have two gyms.
    The current school doesn’t even have one.
