Local officials and members of the Chamblee Charter High School community gathered Jan. 22 for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of a new school building.

DeKalb County Board of Education Member John Coleman praised the achievements of the Chamblee High student body and faculty, who began using the new building in early January.

“It’s an impressively crafted facility of which our community can take great pride,” Coleman said. “I’m just grateful that these students and teachers now have a building almost as impressive as the people in it.”
