The opening of the new Grande Prairie High School in 1950 was a milestone for education in the area. It was one of two composite high schools in the province at the time. It was an impressive building, both inside and out. Mr. Kujath, who was the first principal of the new school, was still there when I attended the school in the 1960s. At the same time, Wapiti Lodge, a dorm for County students, was opened.
