The Opening of the New Wilmington High School

Today the Town of Wilmington and the Wilmington Public School System had an opening ceremony for the new Wilmington High School, and I was honored to have been able to address the large crowd of people in attendance. The new school building is an excellent example of an educational facility that will provide an outstanding learning environment for the community’s children to study and grow for decades to come.

By working together, state and local officials were able to partner in creating the state of the art facility that students will now be utilizing for the first time today.  Other important speakers during today’s opening ceremony included Treasurer Deb Goldberg, Superintendent of Schools Mary DeLai; State Representative Kenneth Gordon; State Representative Jim Micelli; Chair of the Board of Selectmen, Judith O’Connell; Chair of the School Committee, Margaret Kane; Town Manager Jeff Hull; former Town Manager Michael Caira; and former Superintendent of Schools Joanne Benton.

Following today’s speeches and a special ribbon cutting, guests were provided an opportunity to tour the new facilities of the high school.  Please click here to visit my Twitter page where I posted several photos during my tour of the building.  On March 19th, residents will also be given an opportunity to receive student guided tours to explore the new high school.
