Mooresville High Moves Forward
There’s more activity in motion thanks to the passage of the November 2014 education bond referendum.
Mooresville city leaders, school officials, and education supporters gathered earlier this month to celebrate the official groundbreaking for the new Mooresville High School performing arts and athletics center. Work on the education building project will begin in late summer.
Mooresville Graded School District Superintendent Mark Edwards said the groundbreaking was “a big day for all of us,” and noted the importance of last November’s effort to pass the education bond referendum. “We would not be here today if we didn’t have community leaders stand up.”
County Commissioner Ken Robertson, who represents the southern area of Iredell County, was on hand, as was Commissioner Marvin Norman, many Mooresville Council members, and NC Representative John Fraley.
The June groundbreaking will kick-start demolition work at the current MHS baseball stadium and nearby properties acquired for the project. Construction work is scheduled to be completed by June 2017.
