New DHS Groundbreaking
Hundreds of community members joined the Administration and Staff of Dover City Schools in celebrating the Groundbreaking of our new High School. Superintendent, Carla Birney stated: “This is just overwhelming. It’s a wonderful day for our school and our community. This is our celebration that the design process is complete and we are ready to build". Students sang, played their instruments, and tossed dirt with School Board members. Balloons were released as everyone celebrated what we have accomplished and what is to come. Senior Project Manager from Hammond Construction Bob McAuliffe announced: "... in a month’s time, we should be starting footing and foundations. We’re going to work our way from the Hickory side, back into the middle of the site, then we’re going to come up and down adjacent to what is now west 5th Street. It’ll be gone and then we’ll work on the gym, which is, next to the new gym.
