BAY MINETTE, Ala. (WPMI) Baldwin County is stepping up to help after a fire devastated Choctaw County High School, destroying a classroom wing at the school.
Choctaw County's Superintendent is hoping to resume classes next week. Those displaced students will be moved to other parts of the school and local elementary schools.
Students will need more supplies as they change locations. A hundred and fifty desks are now on loan and will soon be on the way from Baldwin County to Choctaw County.
Staff in Bay Minette started loading the desks as soon as they got word from the superintendent. Marcus Baker will make the two and half hour drive come Monday morning.
"We have enough desks, you know surplus desks, that we can send to that county. It's an honor to be able to do this for them," said Baker.
Baker, like so many others, saw the reporting from Butler as folks at Choctaw County High School wondered where they would house students after Tuesday night's devastating fire.
"Now the west wing now its totaled," said Choctaw County Superintendent Sue Moore.
Some students at Choctaw High will have to be moved to the local elementary school so they will need bigger desks.
"We do whatever we can to help each other. Because invariably we will find ourselves in a tough spot at some point and we hope somebody will come and help us," said Baldwin County Superintendent Dr. Alan Lee.
