Guam - There's good news for the JFK school community, as a groundbreaking ceremony for a new campus is scheduled for next week. According to Department of Education Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood, she received word this morning that all the bonds were sold on Tuesday night.

This means that International Bridge Corporation has been successful in obtaining the financing for a new campus in Upper Tumon.

Reacting to the news, JFK principal Ken Chargualaf says he spread the word through the school's intercom system this morning, informing students that a groundbreaking date is tentatively scheduled for September 2. Governor's Deputy Chief of Staff Shawn Gumataotao told KUAM News today that Adelup is obtaining more details about what transpired in New York last night. He says details through a release will be forthcoming.

For the past couple of years, JFK has been without a permanent campus after former Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco and the Health and Safety Task Force had shut it down due to health and safety issues.
