Davie Co. community rallies for new high school building

DAVIE COUNTY, N.C. — More than 400 showed up for the rally at Davie County High school to gain support for a new building.

The “Fun for One Pep Rally and Family Day” offered games, raffle prizes and music for attendees as well as information as to why the community should vote yes for a new Davie County High School.

People could register to vote for the May 6 date and ask questions about the proposed renderings on display.

The plans drafted estimate a building cost of $56.3 million dollars.

Parents say not only does the current school building require a long list of leaking repairs but does not hold enough space for athletic, art, student activities.

The final date to register before the May 6 vote is April 11.

Davie County High School was built in 1956 with about 700 students with a capacity of 1,000.

There are currently about 1700 students.
