“This is a dream come true for many, many people, for many, many reasons,” Barren County Schools Superintendent Bo Matthews said as he was surrounded by students at the entrance of the school’s new Career Technical Education facility.
Although the CTE building is still under construction, Barren County High School students were able to tour the facility on Friday.
“You might have heard that this is a football stadium,” Matthews continued. “That’s not the whole story.
Matthews told the students that the CTE building is a “state-of-the-art, 44,000 square-foot career and technical education facility.”
“The field house is in the basement,” he said. “And there’s a brand new, top-of-the-line turf field that’s coming to Barren County High School’s football program.”
Matthews added that the field will also serve the school’s band and track programs, with the capacity to host major events.
“This is a project that addresses many, many different things at one time,” he said.
