The 15,600 square feet footprint of Barren County High School's new JROTC training facility has been made, marking the beginning of construction for the latest addition to the Barren County High School campus located just off the Cumberland Parkway and the 31-E Bypass on Trojan Trail in Glasgow.  

This latest $1.6 million construction project for Barren County Schools will include a large, open workout area, two classrooms, two locker rooms, two sets of gang restrooms, and a suite of offices, among other areas.  Some of the features of the facility include:
