Education Foundation Land Acquisition
The Chillicothe Educational Foundation took a significant step
in supporting Chillicothe R-2 School District's future by securing enough land to someday
accommodate an entire educational complex. The land amounts to 61 acres and is located
north and northeast of the existing high school.
Foundation officials as well as school representatives and donors gathered on a small plot
of land overlooking the new acquisition during a celebration ceremony held at 10:30 a.m.
on Friday, May 30, 2003. For complete details, visit our News
