Prosser hasn't seen school updates in about 30 years. It hasn't had a new school built for around 50 years! So, it's a wee bit overdue for some improvements. "The Prosser School District Board of Directors will hold a special board meeting on Thursday, January 12, 2017 to hear from the public regarding the Paterson Road high school site," as stated in a news release.

Residents who live around the Patterson Road site, are encouraged to attend the meeting and present the Board with thoughts, suggestions and concerns about the new high school. The meeting is at 7pm in the Prosser High School Library, and is open to the public. I wonder if they'll let the community name the high school, like they did in Richland. No word on when they will be breaking ground, but this is very exciting for Prosser and will bring new jobs the area.
