HINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) Armstrong Atlantic State University plans to expand its Armstrong-Liberty Center in the south Georgia community of Hinesville.

The school announced the expansion plans this week.

The Savannah Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/YyDEpw) that the university has partnered with the city of Hinesville to build a new classroom and laboratory building downtown.

Armstrong President Linda Bleicken said the building is a much-needed facility. She said the partnership with the city will allow for new educational opportunities in the region for students of all ages, including military members, their families and other adult students.

Hinesville Mayor James Thomas Jr. said the project means that more high school students from the community will have a chance to attend college close to home.

Officials said groundbreaking could begin as early as the fall.
