What a great turnout on Tuesday for the Grand Opening of the STEM Building at Churchill High School. Eugene 4J Superintendent Shelly Berman and Churchill High School Principal Kim Finch gave a fabulous presentation prior to the ribbon cutting event thanking all those involved in helping make the project a reality.
Faces were beaming as the ribbon was cut allowing the eager crowd enter into the new facility for the first time. Churchill staff and even a Churchill student demonstrated the new cutting edge technology including a Mondo Pad/Smart Board.
This project was a "fast track project on steroids" with a schedule accelerated at a rapid pace that had workers on the job for 66 days straight, working 10-hour days. The hard work of all those involved has paid off as the former auto and wood shop were converted into design studios, project construction areas, storage, demonstration and testing areas.
Classes are already underway in the new space.
