Students Leave Mark On High School 

What once started as a plan for some basic renovations has turned into a 5.3 million dollar project at Old Town High School.”We’ve known for some time that our science labs were really inefficient and outdated,” said David Walker, Superintendent of RSU 34.With the help of stimulus funds, Walker was able to break ground on his vision for the school’s future.”Six new science labs, two new art rooms and a new apply shop. It’s pretty exciting to see the actual building.”One that will be made with help from those who will benefit the most.”This is about our students and it’s about providing them what they need in order to get the best education possible.”While the building hasn’t even been completed, many of them have already left their mark inside, including members of the construction company behind the project, Nickerson & O’Day.”All of their signatures I think from the entire school are on the beams. They’re going to grow up they’re going to be able to tell their kids, you know, in that beam in the science wing where you’re going to school there’s a beam with my signature and I helped them put that in,” said the company’s CEO, Karl Ward.Turning what was intended to be nothing more than a renovation project into, perhaps, one unforgettable high school memory.
