DISD unveils renovated Munson Stadium, new high school

By  | 

DENISON, TX -- Two new DISD buildings were unveiled to the public Friday morning after months of construction.

The doors to the new Denison High School will open up for students in four days.

"This school is the best I've ever seen," said Principal Cavin Boettger.

School officials, county leaders and community members echoed that sentiment; as they cut the ribbon and opened the newly constructed Denison High School to the public.

"I cannot express my gratitude enough; on behalf of the entire campus, every student, every teacher, every parent, that will benefit in untold ways from this new facility," said Boettger.

Construction on the $61 million project began last year.

The 360,000 square foot building has 14 science labs; almost 80 classrooms, a new gymnasium, and a $1 million auditorium.

Superintendent Dr. Henry Scott is calling it the best high school in Texas.

"We've done well academically. Now we have the facilities to go with it; so all of it together I think is a special thing," said Scott.

Just about an hour later, another DISD landmark was unveiled -- the newly renovated Munson Stadium.

Senior cheer leading captain Jessica Mason says her team got a sneak peak of the field Thursday.

"We just stepped on, and we were like wow, we get to be here, and we get to look up at the stands, and we're cheering, and it's huge and we're so excited," said Mason.

The $6 million renovation was paid for with district money and community donations.

After some weather delays this summer, Head Football Coach Chad Rogers says now, it's game time; not just for the jackets, but for the entire city.

"When you come over that viaduct, and you look over here; there's not anything prettier than what we get to see at Munson Stadium," said Rogers
