Maybe the new High School should be at the Mall?

The NEW High School Mascot

As a South DaCola foot soldier pointed out to me last night, maybe we should move the new HS to the Mall? With Younkers, SEARS and Toys’ R Us closing, we would have plenty of square footage, parking, a food court and when school is done for the day, teenagers can do what they do best, SHOP! It would be an economic boon for the mall.

They could call it MALL High School and they could have a bear as there mascot, they of course would call themselves ‘The Maulers”

I believe the next HS name in the pipeline is “Jefferson” – the 4th president on Rushmore. As to nicknames – Philanderers?

Nickname alternatives – Purchasers, Explorers, Masters, Authors, Founders……????

Back in the 80s, with the Western Mall in steep decline, there actually was a proposal then to make the WM into a high school too.

Just don’t name it Huether. I disagree with a mall location. It should be near or next to residential it serves. The mall area is high volume that couldn’t handle student traffic.

I say call them the Jefferson Starships in honor of the F-35’s that will soon make make living within a few miles of the airport a living hell. And the city wants to build on a plot of land within a couple hundred yars of the busiest runway in SD? With F-35’s?

But the land ? It would be free !

(Written in sarcasm font. I agree that this is a poor location for a school, the gift of land notwithstanding).

What about the Jefferson Drycleaners? We’ll name the HS after George and not Tom…. That way we can maintain the Mt. Rushmore motif, while making everyone happy…

A good high school would be the new city administration building. City functions could be cheap leased space at the 300 building nearby.

Guernsey…the land will be worthless once the F35’s are here and an Environmental Impact Study is done to determine the new noise levels.

Sioux Falls, South Dakota has been removed from the list of locations being considered for the F-35 project.
