CLAXTON - A cotton field behind Claxton Elementary School is the canvas for a new 89,000 square-foot facility, soon to be home to Evans County middle school students. Excited board members each held a gold shovel Sunday afternoon during the ceremonial ground breaking for the new Claxton Middle School slated for completion on July 6, 2012. A crowd of about 40 people gathered in the field directly behind Claxton Elementary, where the new school will stand facing Hendrix Street.
