Students were present to assist with the placing of noteworthy mementos from the year school year into a time capsule for the newly named facility. The capsule will be buried in the building’s courtyard.

“You’re true lasting legacy, Dr. Sykoff, is the thousands of young adults that have been impacted because of what you have done with the school,” board of trustees President Jamie Price said during the outdoor ceremony. “They will be better prepared for life’s challenges and are guided by a strong ethical code. Most importantly, they will go on to impact millions of people and will change the world in ways we have yet to see.”
