UGA to get keys to former Navy supply school

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia will soon be the official owner of the former U.S. Navy Supply Corps School in Athens.

A ceremony is set for March 31 at UGA President Michael Adams' home to formally transfer the property to the university. An official from the U.S. Department of Education will be on hand to sign the deed over to the university, and a representative from the Navy School will hand the keys over.

UGA has plans to use the facility for a medical program in partnership with the Georgia Health Sciences University, formerly known as the Medical College of Georgia. Classes will begin in the fall of 2012.

The Navy School opened on the site in 1953. The U.S. Department of Defense announced plans in 2005 to move the school to Rhode Island.

UGA is spending $11.4 million to renovate the property.
