Granada High School Breaks Ground on Athletics and Aquatics Renovation Project

A little rain could not keep the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) community from celebrating the groundbreaking of the new Granada High School (GHS) Athletics and Aquatics Renovation Project, made possible by the Livermore community’s support of Measure J. On Wednesday, February 20, 2019, community leaders, students, staff members, and teachers gathered near the school’s newly renovated stadium in the area of the new pool and aquatics center. Those assembled represented the substantial commitment from all areas of the community – from Livermore Mayor John Marchand, to members of the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee, to student-athletes – dedicated to supporting the improvement of facilities for the success of student fitness, athletics, and education.

“With this, and other key bond projects, we’re transforming our community through our schools,” said LVJUSD Board President Craig Bueno at the groundbreaking ceremony. “We thank the people of the Livermore community for supporting our schools and supporting education.”
