WAYNESBORO, Va. (AP) - Virginia’s oldest military high school is getting a makeover.

Renovation work began at Fishburne Military School about 18 months ago. Some projects have been completed while others are in progress.

Director of operations Lt. Col. Stephan Corbin tells The News Leader (https://bit.ly/1p8VfPF) that construction has focused on areas such as information technology infrastructure, classrooms and the infirmary.

Fishburne spokesman Chris Richmond says the Alumni House and JRTOC Center for Leadership Studies have undergone extensive renovations.

Richmond says the renovations’ cost has topped $1 million. The work is being funded by donations from alumni and parents, and private foundation contributions.

Fishburne was founded in 1879.
