Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2009
Big doings at McKee High School on Tuessday, November 24, 2009. At 3:15, Congressman McMahon, Kevin Hunt (Executive Director from Councilman Mitchell's office), Borough President Molinaro, and Superintendent Waite arrived at the Black Box Theater. After a brief slide show, there were speeches of gratitude for the work and support from the principal (your friendly blogger), Mr. Joseph O'Brien (the master of ceremonies), Ms. Katherine Kish (AP Math/Science), and Prof. Sonia Fields (Librarian). Additional expressions of gratitude were offered to Mr. Bruce Pane, the Drafting/Architecture teacher and his junior drafting class for designing the front half of the library. Their creativity were invaluable aids to realizing the layout envisioned by Prof. Fields.
