TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Superintendent Rocky Hannna and School Board members celebrated as they cut the ribbon to Fairview Middle School's new facility.

The middle school is now receiving an upgrade after years in an outdated building.

The ribbon cutting is phase two out of three for the school and includes a new gym, cafeteria, kitchen, offices, classroom renovations and a courtyard.

Principal Rusty Edwards says he is excited for his students and that they are deserving of everything this facility has to offer.

"We're very ecstatic about the facilities we've been able to get into now. The students literally for lunch on Wednesday I actually tested the sound system and the students broke out into spontaneous applause," said Edwards. "It was just they've wanted and needed and deserved an upgrade for a long time and now their extremely grateful that they have it."

The school is also expecting to get three times more parking than they have now which faculty views as a plus.
