The old can be made new again; for proof, just take a look at the renovations made to Fairmont Senior High School.
The school hosted an open house Monday and held a ribbon cutting in the new media center. The event showcased all of the upgrades to the building, which was built in 1929.
Those improvements include a new heating and cooling system, new covered walkways, new windows and a refurbished gym. The improvements were made possible by Marion County voters, who passed a bond to pay for the over $12-million worth of improvements.
"They've made it an emphasis to keep the architectural beauty of the facility and replacing things to match the original facade of the building in the 1920s, so it really is a showpiece," said Chad Norman, Fairmont Senior High School Principal.
Members of the staff led tours throughout the building to show off the renovations.
