JACKSONVILLE, Ala. – The Jacksonville State University president says the school will be closed until April 2, when officials assess the damage from Monday’s tornado.
Standing in front of a homeless person freshman dorm at a Wednesday press conference, and surrounded by downed trees and power lines, university president John Beehler, said the school will come back “stronger than we were before, more beautiful than we were before.”
AL.com quotes of him saying: it takes at least a week to remove the dirt and the finish of the assessment of the campus and the 70 buildings.
He says that the school will be the end of the semester and the plans for temporary classrooms and lodging will be made in the assessment of the damage is completed.
