Millard North High School shows off improvements

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- Millard North High School unveiled its newest upgrades Wednesday with an official cutting of the ribbon ceremony.

Current and former students and parents got to check out some important improvements at the school. Among the news digs, a new lecture hall and a second level walkway.

School administrators said due to crowds of students trying to make it to their classes, some students had to walk outdoors to get to their classes.

A new security office was also unveiled. All of this the result of a school bond issue passed by voters.

"The first priority was to address security concerns, the second one was with yeah very over crowded hallways logistically it's such a tremendous improvement so we couldn't be more happy for what this is going to mean to address those issues,” said Millard North Principal Brian Begley.

Other improvements include a hall of fame honoring former students for their service to the school and the community. The upgrades were just in time for school to begin in just a few short weeks.
