HUGE Turnout Thursday for Official Groundbreaking of New Cherokee County Courthouse

There was a HUGE turnout for the official groundbreaking ceremony & associated activities in downtown Centre on Thursday morning, marking the beginning of a brand new age in many ways for Cherokee County.

That event was hosted on-site by Probate Judge Tim Burgess, who also serves as County Commission Chairman, and he welcomed all those that came out to be part of the historic event:

Speakers included the Architect Walter McKey, Presiding Judge Andrew Hairston with the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court, District Attorney Summer Summerford, Attorney Al Shumaker, and also the Mayor of the City of Centre Mark Mansfield.

Reverend Melvyn Salter gave the invocation and also had this to say:

Following the meeting, the ceremonial groundbreaking occurred and at that point, Cherokee County laid claim to the creation of what will surely be a facility to be proud of.

We’ll update our coverage with additional details over the coming days – and we’re all looking forward to bringing that brand new state-of-the-art facility – the new Cherokee County Courthouse – to life.
