COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Cookeville building with a long history as a school has been officially turned over to the Tennessee Technological University Foundation.
The foundation plans to use the Prescott school to add teaching, meeting, office, parking and green space to the growing campus.
According to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen, the building near the campus has previously been a junior high school, elementary school and high school.
The 14-acre lot, which holds the 124,000-square-foot building, was sold to the foundation for $2.6 million in 2008.
The foundation is a private, nonprofit organization that works to support university advancement through private donation. Since the foundation owns the building, it now is responsible for renovations and upkeep.
