It took three years and $30 million, but Martin Luther King Junior Magnet High School finally got the chance to celebrate its new renovations.

The ceremony took place Wednesday in the newly renovated auditorium.

Crews built a new annex building, a new library, and an internet café during the first part of the process back in 2017.

Then they went to work on the cafeteria and college center, a new music and engineering wing, and new athletic locker rooms.

They also renovated the entire 1936 building of the school that once housed Pearl High School.

During the Pearl High portion of the renovation, special attention was paid to preserve the historic features of the building, which included the original parquet floors and the historic seats in the auditorium.
