YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Cardinal Mooney High School has just completed phase one of a $5 million renovation.
The project started earlier this year and was completed just in time for the student’s first day of classes Thursday.
Nearly 500 students walking into the building saw Cardinal Mooney’s brand-new front exterior. There’s new brick on the building and fewer windows for climate control. The roof over the entire school has also been replaced. Inside, there are new ceilings, floors, and walls.
The upgrade also includes ramps and restrooms accessible to disabled people.
Students and staff said they are excited about the upgrade.
The building was first built in 1956, but President Gerald DeLucia said the new modern environment has the school ready for the 21st century.
