Changes at WHS

This year at Whitesburg High has been one of many changes, but it has also been one of advancement. It was the year that the construction began for the new addition to the school. The first step in this construction was to tear down the band building. It was a sad occasion for all of the band members, but especially for Mr. Lester, who had spent many years teaching in it. The band had a final farewell party in the band room before it was removed, with Mr. Lester playing the guitar and singing, and with Joseph Estep’s “Ode to the Band Building” being read by several band members.

Then came the moving of the middle school trailers to make room for the new three-level parking lot. This would be enough space for both students and teachers to park their cars.

Even though it was hard to watch these changes being made, we knew it was for the better.
