Formal groundbreaking for the new Junction City High School project is set for 2:30 p.m. Friday at the new school location near the K-18 – Munson Road intersection.
There is a chance of rain in the forecast so USD 475 officials are making adjustments in their plan. The Chief Operations Officer for the school district, David Wild says he increased the size of the tent for the event late last week, “to a 40 x 40. I’ll probably add a tentage over the speaker’s podium if it looks like rain is imminent.” Concessions will be served inside a nearby Morton building.
Officials will watch the saturation of the parking area that has been mowed in preparation for the groundbreaking.
Wild confirmed Senator Jerry Moran is currently scheduled to be the keynote speaker for the groundbreaking.
