AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

Gov. Kay Ivey made a number of stops in Auburn on Tuesday where she got a close look at the education and healthcare communities in the city's academic institutions.

Ivey visited Auburn University's School of Nursing and Pharmacy and Ogletree Elementary School before taking a tour of the new and improved Auburn High School. 

Ivey commended the high school for its investments in its students' education, saying the school helps recruit new businesses while also giving a boost to the economy. 

"I think everybody is beating the door down to get here," Ivey said of the high school. "This is 1900 students strong in 10th, 11th and 12th grades. I think it says a lot about the moms and dads in this area that want their kids to come to a quality place to get quality instruction." 

Auburn High School boasts a $72 million, 350,000-square-foot campus that includes a number of impressive facilities. The school has an 850-seat performing arts center, two gyms and a space for career tech programs.
