Blacksburg High School Dedication

Posted: Updated:

Although classes at Blacksburg High School started more than a month ago, toady marked a big dedication for the new building.

Ana Frederick was just getting ready to go to high school when the old building collapsed.

"I was looking forward to going to the high school. It all collapsed, then I was walking around in the cold with my backpack in the trailers," says Frederick. "It was really exiting when we found out the new high school was being made."

She says being in the new building is something that she and many others have been looking forward to.

"The most exciting part is seeing the kids reactions," says Principal Brian Kitts.

This is his second year as principal at Blacksburg High School, and during his time at the school, he's been working hard to get everything completed.

"We spent that last year finalizing and working with the teachers and staff in the community to get the building open and running," says Kitts. "It's been an involved project that has brought a lot of people around."

A lot of people who were on hand to take part in the big ribbon cutting and tour the new school.

"It's so much nicer, there's so much more room, and more opportunities with classes," says Frederick. "It's been really awesome."

This is excitement that teachers and staff hope will last as Blacksburg High School students continue to embrace their new school.
