Hot dogs, tours and speeches to celebrate a new Port High

Ozaukee Press staff

Hundreds of people attended a cookout and dedication ceremony Monday evening to celebrate the completion of the $45.6 million Port Washington High School project. The event gave visitors an opportunity to tour the school, including the new commons with its large Pirates logo on the floor and the cafeteria (background) with its wall of windows (photo at right). People gathered in the courtyard in the front of the school to listen to speakers, including John Ashley, executive director of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards (top photo). Below, from right: The oldest part of Port High, which dated to 1931, was razed to make way for a new section of the building that now includes a display dedicated to the history of the school. Laying a new cornerstone were (from left) Port Washington-Saukville School Supt. Michael Weber, Principal Eric Burke and Jon Schueffner, a masonry foreman for a division of C.D. Smith Construction, which managed the project. Grilling in a tie, Jim Froemming, the district’s director of business services, not only helped oversee the project but served as the cook for Monday’s event.
