Students, officials, and community members recently joined at San Marcos High School (SMHS) for the school’s dedication ceremony. The ceremony was held to recognize the facility’s importance in fostering a collaborative spirit and unparalleled education experiences for students and the broader community, along with the school’s mission, “high academic rigor and personal growth for all students.” SMHS Principal Julie Mottershaw and San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD) Superintendent Dr. Kevin Holt were present for the dedication, along with members of the SMUSD Governing Board. Student organizations were also involved in the days’ events. The SMHS Jazz Band provided musical entertainment and the SMHS Air Force JROTC presented the colors. SMHS, home of the Knights, is the district’s flagship high school. It was founded in 1961 and currently serves over 2,000 students. For more on district events, programs, and schools go to
