SISD Celebrates New Sherman High School with Groundbreaking Ceremony
On Monday, October 1, 2018, Sherman ISD celebrated the groundbreaking for the new Sherman High School. Parents, students, Sherman ISD staff, and community members were all present to celebrate the future of Sherman ISD and the construction of the new high school, which will open in August of 2020.
“The evening represented a new beginning for the Sherman community and showcased how our new school will positively impact the lives of future Bearcats,” Superintendent Dr. David Hick expressed. “It was only fitting that our celebration recognized the growth and development within our district and the incredible commitment our parents, community members and business partners have towards our student’s education.”
The ceremony included remarks from School Board President Tim Millerick, City of Sherman Mayor David Plyler, and performances by the Bearcat Marching Band, Hi-Steppers Drill Team and SHS Cheerleaders. VLK Architects and Cadence McShane Construction were also in attendance to showcase the building’s renderings and answer questions regarding the construction site.
On August 8, 2018, the district began the earthwork phase of construction for the new building. The process will consist of moving dirt and grading the site in preparation for structures to emerge in January of 2019. SISD Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Tyson Bennett, says the facility will accommodate 2,600 students and will be a state-of-the-art facility.
“Our community will be proud of what our students will access and experience during their high school career for many years to come,” he explained. “The new Sherman High School will stand out with 21st century technology integration and will enhance the vast array of academic, fine arts, athletics and career & technology programs we provide for our students.”
