Congressman Randy Neugebauer was on site for the groundbreaking of the new Iles-Wheatley Elementary School, where he presented a flag to the student council presidents from both schools.
The groundbreaking is for a new $13.5 million building that will combine Iles Elementary and Wheatley Elementary Schools.
This consolidation is the result of a bond passed by Lubbock citizens in 2010.
