MILLVILLE, N.J. -

State and local officials in Cumberland County are celebrating the start of a project that will significantly expand an area high school.

On Thursday, February 7th, officials with the New Jersey Schools Development Authority (NJSDA), along with students, local representatives, and school officials, held a groundbreaking ceremony to officially begin construction of the new addition to the west side of Millville High School.

Today's groundbreaking was the first-phase of a three-phase project that will bring a total of 230,000 square feet to Millville High School.

Millville is one of the NJSDA's 31 districts that the agency has been charged with funding and modernizing the facilities of.

"The state really cares," said Lizette Delgado-Polanco, CEO, NJSDA. "We are invested in their children's education. And ... most importantly ... that we give them all of the techniques and tools and especially a facility where these students come in with dreams and they can leave becoming leaders of tomorrow.

The first-phase of the expansion project will feature a cafeteria, faculty rooms, and culinary labs when it is completed.
