Hello Meridian Community!
The construction at the High School is entering the final stage of completion, the south gym is taking shape. The entire project will be completed this fall and with the new buildings there will be a few changes in the gymnasium. A committee was formed last fall to address some items in the north and south gymnasiums.
First, currently there are white banners hanging in the north gym displaying the various league, district, and state titles the athletic teams of Meridian have earned. Due to the success that Meridian teams have had in the past and continue to experience, we are running out of space. So these banners will be replaced with a new style of banner. The committee has decided on a system that will be sustainable for many more years of successful Meridian athletic teams. The great news is that during this process, we discovered more league and district titles for the teams!
The other change will take place in the foyer area between the north and south gym. Currently this area displays the photos of individual student athletes and their accomplishments during their time at Meridian High School. Since all of the pictures are going to be removed for construction, it seems like a great time to update this area. The other piece to this process is revisiting the criteria for earning a photo on the wall. The goal behind this process is to improve the opportunity and equity of earning a photo in this area. In this effort the committee has added some criteria to make it more equitable for the student athletes of Meridian:
1) 1st Team All-State
2) 2nd Team All-State
3) State placing as awarded by WIAA (Cross Country, Track and Wrestling)
4) All State Honorable Mention
5) National Recognition after High School (All-American / Professional)
6) 1st Team All-League in the same sport for two separate years or two different sports
7) All-Whatcom County 1st Team starting in 2005
8) Participation in an All-State Game
The goal behind this is to recognize the rich tradition of success that Meridian High School has experienced in athletics. There are athletes who would qualify for their picture to be displayed, but for whatever reason, are not represented. If your picture is not currently displayed or you met one of the above criteria please send your photo (8X10) to Meridian High School with the following information: your specific accomplishments and the year(s) and your year of graduation.
Thanks and enjoy the summer!
Kurt Harvill, Athletic Director
