It was a long-awaited project, one which some thought would never be finished. But following a series of false fire alarms and construction delays, not to mention a few other problems along the way, the students at Los Alamos High School finally have a new building, marking the end of an era.
The school hosted a ribbon cutting on Wednesday night to mark the official “opening” of the building, which cost $23 million, according to LAPS Chief Financial Officer John Wolfe.
Students have been occupying the building for a few weeks. An overflow crowd of school board members, LAHS personnel and members of the community attended the event.
In addition, several individuals involved in the planning stages of the project were in attendance including past school board members and former LAHS Superintendent Mary McLeod. Rounding out the crowd were former LAHS students and teachers and representative Matt Roybal from Congressman Ben Ray Luján’s office.
Following the presentation of the colors by the LAHS NJROTC, School Board President Melanie McKinley opened the ceremony and talked about how the plan came together thanks to the community, past school board members and McLeod.
