It is a day that many educators and students of the Corpus Christi Independent School District have been waiting for, as they broke ground on the new Mary Carroll High School.
CCISD board members and educators celebrated the district's newest addition on the 3700 block of Cimarron.
The new Mary Carroll High School will be built thanks to a $192 million bond that was approved by voters in 2010. The school will be the largest high school in the city, at just over 380,000 square feet.
"Carroll is rich in traditions, and the student council last year, when they first came up with this, brought some projects to me where they are going to take pictures of the tiles that each of the classes have designed on the ceilings, and make a mosaic and transfer that over to the new school," said Eddie Chachere, principal of Mary Carroll High School.
The new Mary Carroll High School is scheduled to open by August of 2014.
