FWBHS Celebrates New Multi-Purpose Building!


On Thursday, February 22, the Fort Walton Beach Vikings and Principal Lindsey Smith rolled out the red carpet for the Okaloosa County School District’s first Multipurpose Building ribbon cutting! Their band and chorus performed, their cheer and dance teams welcomed guests, their ROTC presented the colors, and the leadership students served refreshments! It was so exciting to see a space that will be available to all students on one of our high school campuses. This will be a facility that will support athletics, band, robotics, PE classes, theatre, archery, homecoming dances, ROTC, testing, cheer, dance and so much more. We can’t wait for all of them to open!
