Antelope Union High School hosts open house Friday
Antelope Union High School is celebrating its 60th anniversary by holding an open house for past alumni as well as the other community members to visit the campus.
“A lot has changed on campus since people went to school here years ago,” said activities director Jeff Peters, who has been also teaching on campus since the late 1980s.
He explained their student council will be hosting the event and providing refreshments as well as tours of the school grounds.
There will also be old yearbooks on display as well as other historical displays put together by various alumni clubs.
“Come when you get off work, have some cake and punch and hopefully see some old friends, take a tour and reminisce,” he said.
The event will be held on Friday from 3 to 8 p.m.
Principal Bart Rud said that the open house will be to celebrate the school that has been opened since 1953.
“We're one of the few remaining rural high schools that you'll find, especially in this side of the state,” he said. “It's grown over the years and all the different curriculum offerings that we're offering now are much different than they were before.”
He said that this will be a great opportunity for people to see the new buildings on their campus like the new dining hall, the new industrial arts complex and the new science building for chemistry and physics classes.
“We're always trying to maintain the best for our students as we possibly can,” he said.
