After years of trekking to class down the road from the high school — sometimes in inclement weather and more recently through construction — NJROTC students will finally have a new home on campus.
Before Thursday night’s school board meeting, the ribbon on R Wing was cut, officially marking the end of construction for that portion of the school.
School board President Melanie McKinley, along with board members Jody Benson, Thelma Hahn, Joan Ahlers and Kevin Honnell, as well as Los Alamos High School Principal Sandy Warnock and NJROTC Lt. Cmdr. Wesley Shumaker, cut the ribbon on the building.
McKinley spoke briefly about the milestone prior to the ribbon cutting and said that when the school was built in the 1940s, it was a state-of-the-art building, however, as time has passed; the community is now reminded to not “judge a book by its cover.”
Assistant Superintendent Paula Dean said, “It was a very exciting event because it’s the beginning of the huge construction project and that overshadows the beautiful things yet to come at the high school.”
She also said she was particularly struck when McKinley said, “The quality of the building can now reflect the quality of the learning that goes on inside.”
