hcs 300 300HANSON, Ky. (10/16/19) — Hopkins County Board of Education has unanimously selected Lexington-based Sherman Carter Barnhart as the architectural firm for the Hanson Elementary School construction project.

The new school will be built on the existing campus in Hanson, Hopkins County Schools Spokeswoman Lori Harrison reported today.

The new elementary school has been the top priority on the district facilities plan for new construction since 2011, school officials said. Part of the structure was built in 1928, making the facility the district’s oldest school in operation.

Hanson Elementary, which is also at capacity, is located in a high-growth area of the community, Harrison said.

Board members expressed excitement at taking this first step on the construction of a new Hanson Elementary School. Timeline for the project is still being determined.
