District breaks ground on new ag facility
To meet an expanding high school FFA program, Aubrey school district workers and students broke ground on a new agricultural science facility on Saturday.
The new facility will be built at the existing building location off U.S. Highway 377. The current facilities will remain, receive renovations or be upgraded. A new 3,600-square-foot arena and a 5,900-square-foot animal pen building will be constructed.
The building is funded through a $51 million bond package passed in November 2017.
