It was an exciting day for students at Copper Hills High School. They have been working with West Jordan City in an effort to rename the street in front of CHHS from New Bingham Highway to Copper Hills Parkway. The effort turned into something of a civics lesson for students who learned how to work with city government to get things done.
The school community is extremely excited about the change, which will recognize and honor the long history of Copper Hills High School and its surrounding areas.
Thanks to West Jordan City Mayor Dirk Burton, members of the West Jordan City Council, and others who helped to make the name change a reality and were on hand to celebrate the occasion.
The CHHS pep band was also a part of the ceremony playing music, along with the Madrigals singing the school song as they unveiled the new street sign.
