School Receives Over Three Million Dollars For Renovations

An Eastern Kentucky school receives more than three million dollars for renovations.

Hacker Elementary in Clay County was given the check Friday afternoon. Governor Fletcher says it's an award to the students and teachers for their outstanding test scores and nutrition program and teachers say the money is needed.

"We're very proud. I think this goes to show if you give students the instruction they need and opportunity, they can succeed," Governor Fletcher said.

"My room, I have half of a room, it's a storage room. There's no window in it, no air in it," said teacher Fredie White Abner.

The school's principal says they plan to add new classrooms, restrooms and a media center.
