SCHOOL OFFICIALS MEET WITH ROSE ABOUT LAND

Discussions concerning a proposal made by a businessman and congressional candidate to donate land for a new Gordonsville High School have resumed. The discussions first surfaced in December of 2017 when John Rose offered to donate 20.86 acres of land at the intersection of Highway 141/New Middleton Highway and Highway 264/Hickman Highway to build a “full campus” high school.

This spring and summer, Rose was in the midst of a highly competitive race for the Sixth Congressional District seat now held by Congresswoman Diane Black.
