Goodbye, North High gym

All things must change, even the Wichita North High gym. The school district’s building a new gym right next to the old one, with some of that money from the big bond issue of 2008. Soon the bulldozers will come in and level a structure filled with memories.
The gym was built in 1928. I’m sure it was state-of-the-art for its time. But it must look like a museum in today’s world.
I played basketball in that gym on several occasions, wearing the maroon and gold of West High. I loved the floor and I loved the baskets. I had some very good games at North.
And then, there was the noise. The place seemed to amplify the cheers from the faithful to a deafening level.
Both my children attended North, and I’ve had the chance to be in the gym as a game spectator and for one of their notorious pep assemblies. Those pep rallies were awesome!
Sorry to see that old gym go.

Our thought for today is from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
 
“All things must change to something new, to something strange.”
