GREENE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - A major construction project is happening at a pair of Greene County schools. Work to complete additions to William Monroe Middle and High Schools is set to be done by the end of the summer. 

Crews are building new cafeteria space, flexible classrooms, as well as a large media center for students. Other upgrades will improve security and the way traffic flows on campus.

"We know that these types of spaces help children learn, help them feel more confident and more motivated, more excited to be at school, which is what we want," said Greene County Schools Assistant Superintendent Bryan Huber. "In addition to the learning benefits, I think you also have those community benefits. This is a strong community that's been behind this project from the very beginning."

The price tag on the renovations stands at $28 million.
