Governor OK’s building for FCHS 



Citizen editor

Franklin County High School has a new home, again.

Students attending Franklin County High School will be meeting in the Idaho National Guard Armory, 594 N. State in Preston, as soon as the details can be worked out.


Some patrons of the West Side School District, concerned about high school students attending school in the same building as elementary aged children, took their case to Governor “Butch” C. Otter, who was in Grace two weeks ago for “Idaho’s Capitol for a day.”

Marc Gibbs invited the group of concerned citizens to bring their objections to the governor’s attention. Besides the governor and his delegation, State Senator John Tippets, State Representatives Mark Gibbs and Tom Loertscher were also in the meeting to hear the objections.

The recently remodeled Armory awaits the return of Franklin County High School students.

After mulling the request over and hearing what the patrons had to say, Gov. Otter met with General Gary Sayler, Adjunct General of the Idaho National Guard, last Friday and issued a memorandum of understanding for use of the armory by the district for one year while they arrange for other accommodations.
