Wednesday afternoon, the Coffee County Board of Education awarded the new Nicholls Elementary School project to Charles E. Lewis Construction of Douglas.

The construction company submitted the low bid of $7.1 million and stated that it could finish the new school in 365 days. Seven companies sent in bids. The highest came from Meja Construction of Peachtree City at $10.6 million.

The board of education will break ground on the site of the new school this coming Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. Construction will begin shortly afterward. Superintendent Dr. Morris Leis said that he expects the school to be completed in October of next year.
