Hampden Academy to hold Open House Tonight
What took 20 years to go from proposal to finished project will take about 30 minutes to dedicate tonight. Hampden’s new $49.2 million high school will hold its first major event as Maine Commissioner of Education Stephen Bowen and several other guests take part in the school’s 5:30 p.m. dedication ceremony. “Monday really is the culminating moment of this 20-year effort,” said Rick Lyons, SAD 22 (Hampden, Winterport, Newburgh) school superintendent. “This is a monumental occasion for me professionally. I’ve actually been working on this project for 20 of my 21 years here.” The entire area is invited to the open house tonight at 5:30 p.m.
