High school celebrates new spaces

I had the privilege of taking a tour of new spaces at Anacortes High School, instructional spaces ranging from choir and band rooms to shops and exercise rooms. Tour guide Bob Knorr pointed out that in addition to traditional classes, new facilities will present opportunities for students to get a jump start on practical skills such as sports medicine and theatre sound/lights. In one wing, complementary spaces include sound, control and broadcast studios. Another, with choir and band rooms, also features soundproof practice booths and storage space for instruments and sheet music. This work represents a “wrap” on the new construction/renovation project at Anacortes High School. In addition to new spaces, the construction bond funded some new equipment and technology. Exciting times. See another “In the News” post regarding Brodniak Theatre.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
