Prospect welcomes modernization

Modernization, the goal of the Prospect administration. The way they plan on achieving this goal is by taking down all of the senior and sport award pictures for the 2015-2016 school year.
Prospect’s goal is to not get rid of these pictures, but to preserve them electronically. When the administration finishes taking down all of the pictures, the administration plans to scan all of the pictures and put them on sixty inch monitor created by touch pro.
The newly renovated commons will hold one of the monitors showing the senior pictures. The other monitor will be put in the field house foyer where it will show the athletic photos. Both monitors will be touch screen where students will be able to search a past student by name, year, and award.
Not only does the administration plan to put them on a monitor in Prospect, they also plan to put the pictures on Prospect’s website so that people can look at them anytime they want to.
The main reason that these pictures are getting taken down is that some of them are fading away and hard to see, and also so that they will coincide with the renovations coming to Prospect.
As of right now the administration has planned to keep the current sport award pictures up, but where the senior photos were they plan on just cleaning up the wall right now and will decide on what goes there in the future.
With renovations happening soon, and the administration wanting to make the school look more modern, they still want to keep the history at Prospect alive. They want to have an alum in California show their kid the accomplishments they did at Prospect, and they will be able to do that by the new system being set up.
“One of the things we’re trying to do [at Prospect]…is to try and modernize it in [some] way, and some of those pictures aesthetically are not that nice to look at,” Greg Minter said.
