A golden shovel ceremony on Wednesday, August 23, heralded the transition from the design and planning stages of Hillsboro’s $89 million campus rebuilding project to the construction phase. Speakers included Mayor Megan Barry, Metro Schools Director Dr. Shawn Joseph, School Board Representative Mary Pierce, Council Member Russ Pulley, and Dr. Pelham. Hillsboro sophomore Linh Pham offered a student perspective, and the marching band entertained the crowd gathered on the front lawn. Among those in attendance were U.S. Representative Jim Cooper and four former Hillsboro principals.
