WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Upper Room on the second floor of the Tileston Building has re-opened.

Crews have been renovating the room since last year to make it a more exciting venue for ceremonies and other events. The room is currently used for St. Mary Catholic School assemblies.

"Everyone is really excited and pleased with the room," said facilities manager Clifton Lively.  "It's sort of the crown jewel of the Tileston complex and St. Mary's."

Money for the renovations came from many former Tileston students.  Money generated from events taking place in the room will go towards an elevator for the building.
