Walker County kicked off construction of its new K-8 school by finally giving it a name: Saddle Ridge.

The name was announced this afternoon at a groundbreaking ceremony that drew about 50 people to the 100-acre construction site between Highway 27 and Arnold Road near Rock Spring, Ga.

Saddle Ridge doesn’t refer to any nearby geographical feature.

“It’s just something brand new,” district Spokeswoman Elaine Womack said.
