LAKE TOWNSHIP, OH (WTOL) - The rebuilding of Lake Local High School is now officially underway.
Last June, a massive tornado took lives, destroyed homes, and ruined the high school.
During a special groundbreaking ceremony at the school Sunday, leaders thanked many people for their time, prayers, and support.
"It's a very exciting day today," said Lake High Principal Lee Herman. "We're very anxious to get our building back. It's been a long time since June 5, and our people are ready to come back home."
School leaders say they hope to have the building ready by August of 2012.
