Tech Time Capsule Ceremony

January 24,2018

In honor of celebrating 100 years of Tech High School, students, staff and community members joined in the time-honored tradition of creating a time capsule. 

Principal Charlie Eisenreich welcomed those in attendance, and the Tech band and choir performed the national anthem. Board member Bruce Mohs commented on the year of celebrating Tech's 100 year anniversary. Assistant superintendent Dr. Marsha Baisch and Mayor Dave Kleis remarked on the importance of the day and honoring St. Cloud and District 742 history.

Students from Tech High School took turns putting items into the capsule. Each item was described to the attendees as they were lowered into the capsule. Tiger Build students sealed the capsule while the Tech band performed Tech's alma mater.
