Group hopes to restore old West Point school


The Associated Press



WEST POINT -- A West Point group is spearheading efforts to renovate the former Northside High School so it can be used for community functions. 


Louise Terry is chairwoman of the Northside School Building Restoration Committee. She tells The Daily Times Leader that the first job is replacing the roof on some classrooms. 


Terry says a Mississippi Community Heritage Preservation grant from the Mississippi Department of Archives and History is helping pay for the work. 


The cost of the repairs to the roof is $114,250. Terry says the contractors hope to complete the work in three months. 


Terry, who graduated from Northside in 1954, says the restoration committee was deeded the school in 2004 when the building was condemned and set to be torn down.
