3 new Fairfield schools impress residents during dedication events
“This is really an amazing building,” said Richie Wardlow, a sophomore and a Fairfield band member. “(The sophomores) are really jealous. I didn’t get to go to this building, but hey, everybody else gets to enjoy it.”
The new Fairfield Freshman School also features various components from the old freshman school as a nod to the past.
“It’s amazing,” said Lynn Niemiller, a retired Fairfield language arts teacher, as she described the new Freshman School. “I wish I had the opportunity to teach here…. We’re very fortunate to have this in Fairfield.”
Her husband, Tim, taught for three years at the old Freshman School before moving on to the Wyoming School District where he retired. He quipped, “I retired too soon” after seeing the new building.
