Fielding School officially dedicated
Crowds gathered at Fielding Elementary School last Thursday evening for the official dedication and ribbon cutting on the newly completed elementary.
Dignitaries included members of the Box Elder School District School Board, past and present superintendents, community and county leaders, parents and students.
Principal Scott Hunsaker welcomed the group before Scout Troop 132 from the Belmont 1st Ward, under the direction of Steve Pickett, hoisted a ceremonial flag. The flag was presented to the school by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and was the last to fly over the old school. “It will be the first to fly over this new school,” Hunsaker said. The National Anthem was then performed by Joy Brower, a member of the Fielding faculty, before the flag was lowered and presented to Hunsaker.
After several ribbons cuttings, the gathering moved to the new expansive gym for the dedication program. A handful of speakers, including Jim Christensen, BESD Facilities Director and past Fielding student Rep. Ronda Menlove, praised the new school and its impact on the community, now and into the future. Lynn Capener, a member of the School Board, conducted the dedication.
Following the program, visitors were invited to tour the building and grounds.
