Hopkins County Board of Education has unanimously selected Sherman Carter Barnhart as the architectural firm for the Hanson Elementary School project.
The new school will be built on the existing campus in Hanson.
The new elementary school has been the top priority on the district facilities plan for new construction since 2011. Part of the structure was built in 1928, making the facility the district’s oldest school in operation. The school is also at capacity, and located in a high-growth area of the community.
Board members expressed excitement at taking this first step on the construction of a new Hanson Elementary School. Timeline for the project is still being determined.
