Knights To Nomads
Several months ago a tornado hit my daughters high school. It hit on a Saturday night/Sunday morning so blessings all around. Just a building. Much like a church is a building and it’s flock is the real church, the heart and lifeblood of a school is it’s students and teachers.
We are blessed a thousand times over that this didn’t hit during a school day.
This is my alma mater as ￼well. I graduated in ’86. I don’t have a lot of fond memories of high school. I went when I was supposed to, I had decent grades. I had friends and enjoyed chorus. One of the ROTC leaders encouraged me to take the ASVAB and join the army. And that’s about it.
Our kids have been moved to another campus. Our old ATEC building. They’re resilient. School carries on.
Today they finally started tearing down the old place to make way for new construction. I don’t know how long this will be, but my daughter will be a sophomore this year. I wonder if she’ll get to graduate from the new building and enjoy her senior year there?
The North Central High School mascot is the Knight.
The Castle has been razed.
The subjects are scattered.
We’ve gone from Knights to Nomads.
