Wyoming Park graduates help district start anew | News
WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)-This fall, two Wyoming schools will consolidate under one name, mascot and logo.
Wyoming Park High School is being transformed into Wyoming Junior High School and Rogers High School will become the district's only high school, serving 10th grade through 12th grade.
Saturday night, two graduates of Wyoming Park High School did their part to help the district start anew, by selling off old school memorabilia.
"When we found out the schools were combining, we wanted to do something that brought Wyoming together. That's why [this event is] called Unite Wyoming," explained co-organizer Jonathan Vitale Saturday.
"As a Park grad, I'm going to miss the tradition, but as far as the two schools coming together, I think it's good for the community," added co-organizer Steven Varnes.
The proceeds from Saturday's Unite Wyoming event will go directly to the Wyoming Public School District. A ribbon cutting for the new Wyoming High School will take place August 23. Classes start September 4.
