Groundbreaking held as Walker High School improvements get underway
WALKER - Livingston Parish school officials and community leaders held a groundbreaking ceremony Monday at Walker High School as construction is launched on a major expansion and improvement plan for the school.
The construction is part of a $25 million capital improvement plan that was approved by Walker School District voters two years ago.
The expansion will include a new 80,000-square-foot, two-story building with 32 classrooms, a library, teacher workroom and administrative offices.
The main building, which will face Florida Boulevard, will create a new front entrance to the campus for students and visitors.
Other construction plans include a new cafeteria with outdoor seating, a new band room, a 16,000-square-foot vocational-technical education building and a new 200-seat gymnasium.
