College Place High School is not yet completed, but it is starting to feel real.
The new school, as of Thursday, now has colors (navy blue and orange) and a mascot (Hawks).
It won’t be long before the high school will have its first graduating class on campus. This year’s seventh-grade students at Sager Middle School will open the new school in the 2014-15 school year. That’s not too far off.
Having another high school in the Valley is great for those in the College Place School District and outside of it. It means new opportunities and more choices for students. It’s also going to ease the overcrowding at Walla Walla High School.
As opening day for the new school approaches, College Place residents have reason to be excited.
Go Hawks! It’s going to seem strange at first, but it won’t take long before folks are cheering on the orange-and-blue Hawks.
