From staff reports

Omni Visions no longer owns Roane Academy.

“Roane Academy has been sold,” Omni Visions spokeswoman Jennifer Wigal said Friday. “I can send you a statement regarding that.”

Wigal did not provide that statement and she also didn’t respond to questions about who purchased Roane Academy.

“Unfortunately, I am unable to provide a statement at this time,” she said later via email.
