Funds for a new Tech High School and for updates to Apollo High School will likely return to the ballot for St. Cloud area voters this November. On Thursday, Superintendent Willie Jett proposed a roughly $138 referendum to bring to the ballot this fall.
The St. Cloud area school board heard feedback on why a recent referendum failed, summarized from recent community listening sessions. The $167 million November referendum, which included money for a new Tech and updates to Apollo High School, failed with 53% voting against and 47% voting yes.
This week for our All Star Student series we hit the Apollo High School tennis courts to meet with junior Sam Gerdes. Sam is no stranger to after school activities. She's involved in anything from athletics to helping freshman students at Apollo through Link Crew.
