California Junior High School Gets Addition

A new eight-classroom building is nearing completion at Kermit McKenzie Junior High School in Guadalupe, Calif. The new building at the school will feature six standard classrooms and two special education classrooms. The new facility will help with anticipated growth in the Guadalupe Union School District.
