City of Lemmon to receive new high school after approval of bond issue

LEMMON, S.D. — A new high school will be built in the City of Lemmon, now that a $10,000,000 bond issue has been approved.

The building will house roughly 120 students in grades six-through-12 and will be adjacent to the armory. School administrators say community support made it possible.

“I also think that we have a community that takes a lot of pride in our area,” said Shawnda Carmichael, the Principal of Lemmon Elementary School. “They are service minded and there are many, even in disregard to the school, that wake up every day and ask what can I do to have a positive impact on our community.”

No updates have been given on when building will begin, but hopes are the building will be done in August of 2021. The current building was built post-war and the need for a new building seemed more feasible than repairing the old.
