Students in one county are one step closer to getting a new high school.
Clark County school officials held a groundbreaking ceremony for that school Monday afternoon.
The $52 million facility will be on Boonesborough Road in Winchester.
It should be finished in about two years.
The school will replace the current George Rogers Clark High School, which school officials say is at capacity.
The school's principal says he's looking forward to the new facility.
"Oh, it's exciting, there's nothing like it," George Rogers Clark Principal David Bolen said. "I'm a longtime secondary principal and it's hard to express the way I feel because I know the excitement that's here, the new school that will be for our kids here in Clark County."
The new school will also be named George Rogers Clark High School. It will have room for an extra 250 students.
