Mundfordville, Ky (WBKO) --- It has been only one week since the new Hart County High School has been open for students.
"I was in awe on the first day, of the looks on their faces, the amazement, the satisfaction, it was truly an amazing day," said Hart County Superintendent Nathan Smith, talking about the students when they walked into the new building.
Sunday was a day for the community to see what six years of planning and 18 months of groundwork has accomplished.
"You can tell by the outcry of people coming in to view the building, that it is not only us. In Hart County, students truly do come first. It's a community where students are first," said Smith.
Every administrator in the central office had a part in the new two-story, 170,000 sq ft high school.
"Every room has been discussed with numerous groups. Every floor design was put through probably 20 hours of scrutiny before we decided, 'Yes! That's what we want," said former Superintendent Ricky Line.
They wanted the new school to tell what Hart County embodies. The small details throughout the school and even on the floors of the hallways do just that, with the different designs showing school pride.
"Monday morning when they walked through the building was unbelievable and this afternoon during open house," said Smith.
Approximately 500 people walked through to tour the new school.
"We're very proud of it," said Smith.
