Old Poca Middle School Torn Down

A demolition crew started the task Wednesday of taking down the old Poca Middle School. Once the demolition is finished in about three weeks, that space will be used as a drop-off spot for buses. The newly completed Poca Middle School is combined with the elementary school and already sits not far from the old one. The Poca Middle School was a high school when it opened in 1926, and it became a middle school in the 1970s.
