What a blessing to this little ole town that we call home! Check out these pictures from the ribbon cutting ceremony at the brand-spanking NEW North Baltimore Middle/High School. Located at 2012 Tiger Drive, the school is all set to go when the students arrive on Wednesday for the first day of classes.
When I think back to all the hours that have been spent in trying to make this day happen, by countless individuals who have volunteered their efforts, I am overwhelmed with emotion. I am so proud to call NB my home. It's people are kind-hearted and caring. It's school teachers and administrators are dedicated beyond measure.
Be sure to mark your calendar for the official Dedication ceremony on Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 2:00 pm.

The crowd could come and go as they were able after the ribbon cutting, until 8:00pm. I saw many people who grew up here, used to teach here, work here, and of course, many of us who still call NB our home. Great Crowd! Great Night for all of NB!
