FOSTORIA – The community took time to visit the new Fostoria Junior/Senior High School building Sunday afternoon during the dedication of the new building and open house.

Students were able to enter the building following the holiday break.

Community members were able to walk through the new building through self-guided or guided tours.

Ohio 88th District Representative Bill Reineke said the facility would be used to the advantage of providing the best and greatest to the state of Ohio.

The new building features two gymnasiums, a cafeteria and auditorium, a library and four sections of classrooms which can be opened up for more collaborative learning spaces. The building itself is also equipped with more natural light that shines in through multiple windows.

The entire process began in 2015 with the 3.5-mill, 35-year bond issue being passed.

“This new facility speaks for itself,” Superintendent Andrew Sprang said. “This school will help our children and students with the tools they need to be successful.”

Sprang said the new building would not have been possible without the support of the community.

Sprang took the time to thank the community during the dedication ceremony, as well as the Fostoria Board of Education, District Treasurer Sue Lehmann, project architects Garmann Miller, Ohio Facilities Construction Commission, construction managers and general contractors.
