ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque High School celebrated the grand opening of a new commons area, performance space, cafeteria and administrative offices last week — a $14 million upgrade.
The party drew hundreds of parents, students, alumni and former staff, including four past principals — Richard Romero (1976-1983), George Bello (1983-1993), Don Duran (1996-2001) and Linda Sink (2001-2007).
Tim McCorkle, principal since 2007, said it was a privilege to take the stage with his predecessors.
“These principals are legends,” McCorkle said. “They paved the way. It’s an honor to carry that forward.”
