We share stories about where we were (work. Rearranging my office furniture) and where our kids were (Savannah. Patrick was suspended and spending quality time with his dad as a result) when the F4 tornado struck and destroyed the high school (more photos here).
Today, I was fortunate enough to tag along with a group of engineers from my office to see the soon-to-be completed Enterprise High School.
EHS will be the largest high school in the state of Alabama, with 520,000 square feet located on 135 acres, and some helluva awesome features:
- Three floors of classrooms, media and lecture rooms, and a chemistry lab that had me itching to pull out a lab coat and goggles
- Multiple computer labs, hundreds of media-streaming screens, "smart boards" in every classroom and a high-tech auditorium
- An indoor shooting range
- An 8,000-seat football stadium, 3 full-sized basketball courts, and locker rooms galore
- Price tag: $92 million
