Superintendent Marty Kobza of Sheridan's District 1 says the recent land purchase at Big Horn will bring the facility in line with other comparable schools in the state.
Surprisingly, though, he said, the older students are a bit jealous.
Kobza shared his thoughts with us during Tuesday's Public Pulse news talk show. He also talked about his Tongue River school, which is for the students from the towns of Ranchester, Dayton and Parkman. He said they were awarded a federal food grant for $2,500 to pay for healthy snacks.
He went on to say, the students have really been getting into the whole idea of trying new foods.
This is Kobza's 14th year as a superintendent, with the last three spent working for the Sheridan district.
