Phil Campbell High School Reopens After 2011 Tornado
Phil Campbell High School reopened Monday, years after a tornado destroyed the school.
The day was extra special for the senior class. They've never experienced the feeling of having a building to walk in. They were finishing 8th grade when the school was destroyed on April 27th 2011. Since then the students have attended class in portable classrooms and fellowship halls.
I haven`t been in a real school since 9th grade, and it`s just a whole new experience. I`m really excited to be in the new building.'
Teachers were also excited. Many were able to hand out textbooks for the first time this school year.
