It took almost 50 years, but it finally happened.... The Class that ROCKED Biddeford, Maine returned to Biddeford High School.
Thank you to Linda Verville, Director of Development, Biddeford School Department!
At the Tiger Gym, students and staff welcomed the older/wiser Tigers back with open arms. After the lunch in the cafeteria, and during much conversation, the tour began. The turnout was larger than expected... 32. Therefore, it was necessary to split into 2 groups. The school was well prepared for Club 67. The students did a great job controlling the chaos, and school was in session. Sorry BHS.... we never did anything quietly.
Biddeford High School looks very different than in 1967.... Entrances and exits have been moved, elevators installed, flat screens throughout for schedules and events, library with rows of computers with internet connections, Business Academy, theatre-like lecture hall, and more. All were impressed! However, one question remains.... which ones were the teachers?
Outside at the digital sign, pictures were taken - then it happened.... S O N G, and the words could be heard across the river and beyond! Go Tigers!
All of Biddeford can be proud of Biddeford High School.
Was on Friday, November 14th from 5pm-7pm in the Tiger Gym
