David Luther is Assistant Superintendent for Community Relations at Jefferson City Public Schools. He says this purchase will benefit for both the school and community.

“Finding someone to purchase a high school… That in itself is an intimidating thought, because repurposing a facility that large is not easy. It just so happened that it was a perfect situation,” Luther says.

Lincoln University is paying 8.4 million dollars for a majority of the high school campus, including the football field. Linn State is paying 1.7 million dollars for the Nichols Career Center.
