When Adair County School District students return to classes on Monday, January 2, 2017, another major chapter in the transformation of the Adair County School Campus will have hopefully taken place, with the razing of the J.T. Coomer School Bus Garage, a structure which served the system well for many decades, but which became woefully inadequate in today's world of bigger, more efficient buses.


According to Jimmy Lawhorn, who started the job for Glenn Wilham's Lakeworks Construction, LLC, on Friday, December 23, 2016, the old bus garage should be completely razed in the near future.

Mr. Lawhorn said that some site work may remain to be completed in the first days of the new year.

Tuesday evening, December 27, 2016, Lake Works Construction, LLC, had much of the old bus garage on the ground. The view shows, in addition to the demolition, a perspective on a campus barely recognizable by those who attended the first classes in the initial buildings in 1954. On the left is the old "Shop" or "Ag" building, now a storage building for the maintenance department. Next, from left, a portion of the old ACHS building, which now houses the Adair County Middle School, and on the far right, the Leader in Me banner on the ACMS building.
