The Grant County Economic Development Council was able to tour the new Quincy High School that is currently being built on Road 11 NW. The state-of-the-art building will be open for the 2019-2020 school year.
The new high school will boast of a new FFA barn, new sports complex, culinary arts facilities, a theater with an orchestra pit, welding, carpentry, a green room for video production and it will be wired with the latest technology in each and every classroom. The teachers will have a microphone that has speakers wired into the ceiling so that even with a soft spoken teacher, every student will be able to hear from any direction of the room.
Walking through the almost completed building was hot on a summer day with no AC, but being able to see first hand the decisions that have been made for the school was exciting. Every detail was thought through with precision. From the colors being chosen to complement the school colors, to the custom art throughout the school that reflects on the history that agriculture has to the community. It really is a building where agriculture meets technology.
