As many of you know, the fate of the New Waverly Elementary/Middle School has long been up in the air following a legal dispute over a construction contract for the school. Community members and Baltimore City Public School officials have worked very hard over the past several months to push for a solution to the dispute, and their efforts have paid off!
With the dispute over the contract now settled, CAM Construction will soon be breaking ground for the new school. I’d like to recognize the tireless efforts of Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke, Dr. Alonso and Baltimore City Public Schools and the many, many community residents who did not give up and helped to make this happen. It’s a real victory for our City and especially our students.
I’ll keep everyone posted once I hear about the groundbreaking!
