Exciting changes are coming to the agricultural building on Bourbon County High School’s campus.
Designing Classrooms, a Winchester-based non-profit that specializes in classroom makeovers, chose Tara Wolfenbarger’s proposal to renovate the space near the school’s greenhouse.
“My proposal was--we’re attached to the greenhouse, and this is called a head house,” said Wolfenbarger. “In the Ag. Building there is only two standard classrooms. In years past, we’ve rotated and best used our space, but this is a space we’ve never utilized.”
Wolfenbarger plans to turn the head house into a classroom, not only to free up space but also to ensure that her greenhouse and floral design classes are closer to their work space.
“This (the head house) is going to be completely different,” said Karen Hoskins of Designing Classrooms.“It is going to be so exciting and so much fun because it won’t be your ‘standard classroom.”
District administrators are thrilled about the renovations, which will begin in March, as well.
“We’re so proud of our agriculture department,” said Superintendent Amy Baker. “They do so much for the community. They raise vegetables during the summer for the children that come to the Munch Mobile.”
BCHS principal Shane Mitchell said he thinks that the students will love the space “for years and years to come.”
