Ribbon-cutting at ConVal gym

  • ConVal graduate Alex Skinner, left, and ConVal student Ryan Leonard share ribbon cutting honors Tuesday at the entrance to the ramp leading into ConVal High School's renovated gymnasium wing, with an assist from ConVal Principal Brian Pickering. At the ribbon cutting ceremony, Pickering said Skinner's comments at the 2012 ConVal deliberative session, where he spoke eloquently about the challenges he faced in getting around the school as a student with a disability, were instrumental in securing voter support for the project, which brought the gym wing into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. "When you heard Alex's words, it just grabbed you, because it was so real," Pickering said. <br/><br/>(Staff photo by Dave Anderson)
