KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A number of Knoxville area dignitaries turned out at Gibbs High School Thursday for the dedication of a new brick walkway and sign.
The Gibbs High Foundation is using the event as a fundraiser to help put technology in the hands of all the school’s students. They’re selling engraved bricks so they can make sure students and teachers have the tools needed to help make the school one of the best in the South.
“We don’t have the resources to a put a device in every kid’s hand to help them learn, and Gibbs has decided they’re going to do it themselves out here. And I love that,” said interim Knox County Schools Superintendent Buzz Thomas.
The new walkway was designed by Gibbs High School teacher Amy Mitchell and students in her computer-aided design class.
