On August 10 at noon, Sweetwater County School District #2 Superintendent of Schools, Donna Little Kaumo and Expedition Academy Principal Ralph Obray conducted an official ribbon cutting, celebrating the opening of the new school.
A year ago the students enrolled at Expedition Academy occupied a wing at Green River High School. According to Superintendent Little Kaumo, " We are very excited for the students and staff. They now have their own school where they can continue their outstanding work."
Board Chairman, Steve Core, cited the district's efforts to utilize a local building, therefore, saving the state of Wyoming and its tax payers millions of dollars. The turnout for the ribbon cutting was outstanding and those who came were able to tour the new facility.
