The Ribbon Has Been Cut
RIBBON-CUTTING: The renovated Barrigada campus is now open for operations. Governor Eddie Calvo (center), Superintendent of GDOE Jon Fernandez, Speaker of the Legislature Judith Won Pat, Principal Jim Reyes, other dignitaries and UMS Student Body Association members cut the ceremonial ribbon on Aug. 13. The campus was closed on January 2012 for health and safety violations. From then until July 2014, the school temporarily inhabited the campus in Tiyan.
