Ramstad Dedicated

Posted: Updated:

Erik Ramstad Middle School had to be torn down following the 2011 flood.

In 2012 rebuilding began, and today Ramstad hosted a dedication ceremony to officially present their new school to the Minot community.

Senator Hoeven, who helped to break ground for construction, made his way to the school and take a tour of the new facilities.

He isn't the only one smiling about the progress.

(Mark Vollmer, Superintendent) "Recovery is a long long process, and it's going to take a long time for our community to recover. Our goal immediately following the flood was to get kids back into school as quickly as we could. We were able to quickly get them into temporary facilities. The Ramstad kids were in temporary facilities for nearly two and a half years. So we got them in here in the new building on December 2nd. It's nice to have a new home for Erik Ramstad middle school."

Erik Ramstad total construction cost was about 36 million dollars.

The school was paid for with local and federal funds given to Minot and Ward County.
