CORE in the News: VVHS cuts ribbon on new $8 million gym

“This was a 20 year journey.  It took a lot of time and effort to get us to where we are today.   There are a lot of people to thank for making this dream come true,” said Virgin Valley High School Principal Cliff Hughes as he welcomed students, parents and the community to the school’s shining new $8 million gym.

Hughes recounted how Grant Hanevold of Moapa Valley provided inspiration and advice to Virgin Valley High School as both rural schools struggled to take their place alongside the urban high schools in Clark County with adequate facilities for both male and female athletes.  

After cutting a ceremonial green ribbon on Tuesday evening, Hughes and student body president Taylor Waite led the excited crowd into the beautiful new gym.  The VVHS band played pep songs and cheerleaders did a dance routine as the crowd of about 200 people took their seats on the sleek new Bulldog green and white bleachers.   The crowd rose as a gigantic American flag was unfurled and the VVHS choir sang the National Anthem.
