On Monday, February 23, 2015, the Lewiston School District voted to name an architectural firm to work with the board on resolving issues surrounding the building or remodeling of the old high school.
The architectural firm of LKV/RGU was voted as the number one finalist. According to the Idaho Observer, school board member Dale Yochum said that educational persons familiar with LKV/RGU spoke highly of the firm. Besides that, Yochum felt it was a plus to have a local firm involved in any future plans of the school district.
"This is wonderful news. We have yet to hear from the District, however, I can speak for both LKV and RGU that we are extremely excited about the opportunity to work with the District and the community of Lewiston," Amber Van Ocker of LKV said in an email statement. "Educational facility design is a true passion for both of our firms and we are thrilled to be a part of the future educational design goals of the Lewiston School District".
Lewiston has been mired in a dispute over whether to rebuild or remodel the old school. Monday's action took a step in resolving that issue.
