“The new future is coming,” Bothe said. “It’s been 60 years since a major project has been done at the school.”
Friday’s rain didn’t stop the Westby Area School District from celebrating the construction start of their district-wide school improvement projects with groundbreaking ceremonies at Coon Valley Elementary School and Westby Middle/High School.
Michaels said everything that happens at school is because of the support of the community.
Representatives from Bray Architects and Miron Construction also spoke at the ceremonies. High school choir students sang the national anthem and high school band members performed the school song at both ceremonies.
