Liberty County and state officials broke ground Friday on the new education facility that will allow students to earn technical college credit while still in high school.

Following a Liberty County Chamber of Commerce luncheon with guest speaker Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, attendees were invited to the site where the new Liberty College & Career Academy foundation will be laid.

“This is a great day … we’re so excited that you’re here to celebrate with us,” BoE Vice Chairwoman Verdell Jones said. “Help us, support us and most of all, support our young people.”

Jones reminded the audience that the barren ground was not just ground to be looked at but solid proof of how visions come to life with the work of the right people.

Cagle also briefly spoke to the audience and reaffirmed his excitement for the development of the new campus.
