MEDICINE HAT, AB (September 26, 2014): Today, Cypress-Medicine Hat MLA Drew Barnes released the following statement on the grand opening of the Dr. Roy Wilson Learning Centre:
“Today is a great day for the Medicine Hat community with the grand opening of the Dr. Roy Wilson Learning Centre. This school will bring a massive boost for the Medicine Hat region.
“Dr. Roy Wilson was a hugely significant local figure and education for our young people was something he was very passionate about. Dr. Wilson will, without a doubt, have a legacy that will live on forever in our community.
“While this school is great news for District 76 and the booming area of Southridge, the need for new schools in the Province remains overwhelming. The Premier and new Education Minister must assure parents, students and teachers alike, that there is a detailed plan to build new schools and modernize others, where and when they are needed.”
