"Seeing the kids reaction when they see the finished product. Watching the kids get excited when they came into this locker room and seeing the finished product in this locker room," said Bear. "Watching them go through Sunnyside and seeing the technology That they have to get a better education."
Superintendent Les Huddle said the completion of these projects have all been part of a bigger vision, the students.
"You go back to our Sunnyside edition you go back to what Tecumseh is going to be and it's just that wow factor, you know we're kind of trying to set a tone here. First class facility for first class kids."
