RICHMOND, Va. -- After four months housed in another school, students returned to a newly renovated Overby-Sheppard Elementary in north Richmond.

"Today is an extremely big day," Richmond School Board Member Felicia Cosby said.

Richmond City Council pumped about $4 million worth of renovations into the 40-year-old building located at 2300 1st Avenue.

Those renovations were unveiled during the first day of school for the students Wednesday morning.

Interim Richmond Schools Superintendent Tommy Kranz told the gymnasium full of teachers, staff, and students that he had wanted to build an entirely new school.

"I think the school system showed with this project that if you give us the funds we can get the job done," Kranz said.
