Ribbon Cutting at Hendersonville High School Marks a Milestone in Science Education
Hendersonville High School welcomed guests, faculty, and community members for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, October 18th to unveil its state-of-the-art science labs, marking a significant step forward in the educational experience of the students.
These four newly-renovated science labs are poised to provide incredible opportunities for the students, offering them modern facilities to explore science. The transformation includes the addition of two chemistry labs and two biology labs, creating a total of four spaces for scientific exploration.
The enhancements to these labs are designed to foster a conducive and safe learning environment. Key features of the labs include portable and stationary hoods, chemical storage, ventilation systems, hydraulically adjustable lab tables, addition of drains, and upgraded plumbing and electric.
"Today is a remarkable day for Hendersonville High School and its students. We are deeply committed to providing top-notch education, and these revamped science labs are a testament to our dedication," Hendersonville High School Principal Dr. Mel Sawyers said. "We now have the perfect environment for our students to pursue their scientific passions. We look forward to nurturing the next generation of scientists and innovators."
Retired Hendersonville High School Principal Bob Cotter, who played a significant role in the development of these labs, joined current Principal Dr. Mel Sawyers to cut the ribbon, symbolizing the seamless transition from the past to the future of science education at Hendersonville High School.
Thank you to our teachers, staff and community members as well as Senator Haile, Hendersonville Mayor Jamie Clary, and school board members Steven King and Allen Lancaster for attending the ceremony.
