Carter ceremony held this morning

The payment was actually sent in last week, but this morning, Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett handed off a ceremonial check for almost $13.9 million to Partners Development in exchange for the keys to Tim Burchett Elementary School for the Carter Elementary.

“It took a lot of effort to get to this point, but today we can officially say that Carter Elementary School is a realization,” Burchett told a crowd of roughly 200, adding that “citizen involvement matters, and elected officials do listen.”

Construction crews still have some minor work left, but the 90,000-square foot TBESFTCC will open in August just in time for the new school year.

Here's a few photos from the event.
