There was an air of frustration at a meeting held June 6 at the Branch and Associates work trailer where school officials, Dr. Dale Ellis, Montgomery County Schools superintendent, Bill Mingin, maintenance supervisor and Benjie Brown, athletic director of the newly built school, met with several supervisory personnel form Branch and Associates and Todd Berg, a member of the architectural firm Morris -Berg Architects handling the project. 

The frustration was because the projected date of completion has moved about two weeks farther into the future. The significance of the projected deadline, which is currently March 11, 2020 for the high school, is that in the agreement with the USDA for the loan, if the building is not complete by the end of February, Montgomery County tax payers will be hit with an $800,000 to $1 million  interest penalty.
