On December 15, 2016, Metcon broke ground on the new Penderlea K-8 School in Willard, NC. Around 200 people attended the ground breaking ceremony including town leaders, teachers, parents and students. The event included special entertainment in the form of Christmas Carrols performed by the Penderlea student band members. “It was wonderful to see the town folks coming together around this project, and it hit home just how meaningful this school is to the community. Now we have to bring it home to them, and I know our team will” states Matt Temple, Project Manager for the project. The Penderlea school opened in 1938, so it's an older facility, and obviously, education has changed since then and this will allow us to have classroom space that is matching today's curriculum and so we are very excited for the children and again the community as a whole,” said Terri Cobb, Superintendent of Pender County Schools.
