Hendersonville High hosts ribbon cutting of its new, renovated campus


City, county and school leaders perform a ribbon cutting on Aug. 3 to celebrate the completion of the renovations at Hendersonville High School.

HENDERSONVILLE — Hendersonville High School Principal Bobby Wilkins couldn’t stop smiling on the morning of Aug. 3, the day city and county leaders held a ribbon cutting for the school’s eight-year renovation project.

After several of the project’s leaders spoke, Wilkins, a 1975 HHS graduate, was the last speaker of the ceremony and was introduced by Henderson County Public Schools new Superintendent, Mark Garrett.

“His family has a legacy here, and he has a legacy here at Hendersonville High School. When I think ‘Bearcat,’ even before I arrived here in Henderson County, I think Bobby Wilkins,” Garrett said.

With that, Wilkins walked over to the podium and held up his arms in excitement.

“Look at this place. Is this not beautiful? Isn’t it amazing?” he said. “I want to introduce all the alumni who are here today. That’s what this place is all about.”

Wilkins said his grandmother was the first to graduate from the school in his family, and that was back in 1908.
