No bats found at Johnson C. Smith dorm

Officials at Johnson C. Smith University say Myers Hall will reopen to students Wednesday, after it was closed for several days after some students said they saw bats inside the building.

School officials said inspectors found no bats, but they are doing a final check of the building Tuesday before letting students back in.

Myers Hall is a four-story dormitory built in 1967. When students reported seeing bats, school officials closed the building and called on inspectors. Jennifer Gaskins, a spokeswoman for the university, said authorities found a few small holes and sealed them.

“We didn’t see any sign of bats, but we sealed everything up, just to make sure,” she said.
