WELLS, MN – It’s been more than six months since voters approved a nearly $29 million dollar bond referendum to replace a local school.

Now, the new facility in Wells is starting to become a reality. The United South Central School District held a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday afternoon.

“It sends a message to anybody that is thinking about moving here that this school district is, the communities in this school district are looking to the future, they’re looking to build a better future for their kids and our communities. And this is a great signal we are doing that,” said USC Superintendent Jerry Jensen.

The new facility is a replacement for the current school, which was built in the 1930’s. It’s scheduled to open in the fall of 2014.
