COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Brookstone held a groundbreaking ceremony today for the school's new athletic center.
The Cheves Athletic Center was made possible through a donation from Cecil and Betty Cheves.
The multimillion dollar facility will be an area where the athletic department can hold meetings.
The building will also house locker rooms and concessions during games.
Athletic director Jay Sparks says this a great day for the students.
"We want them to be academically strong and socially strong, but athletics offers them something that maybe the English class does not," said Jay Sparks, Brookstone Athletic Director.
Construction is scheduled to take nine months -- a completion just in time for tennis, soccer and baseball seasons.
