BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — There’s something truly special happening at Woodlawn High School these days.

Two years ago, the campus launched a culinary arts program with a fully functional kitchen.

Now, students have the chance to expand on the skills they learn at a Lawson State Community College campus located just across the street.

On Wednesday, the college broke ground on a new building to house a culinary school.

Students who enroll can earn an associate degree in just two years.

The $3.6 million expansion of the A. G. Gaston Building will begin in August.

Classes are scheduled to begin in the fall of 2014.
