OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — After months of delays, a new $30 million gym at Oxford High School is now officially complete.
Students and faculty got their first chance to check out the facilities on Thursday.
The two-story gym has more than 1,600 seats.
Oxford Superintendent Brian Harvey tells a local newspaper that the new gym is the “unofficial heart” of the school.
School officials say it provides Oxford with a much-needed, larger gathering place for school and community events.
