Photo courtesy of Hutteball & Oremus Architecture Wed, 09/06/2017 information from Highline Public Schools How many new high school buildings have a working dental lab, a hospital ward with eight beds, and a medical laboratory with a centrifuge and cell incubators? There is one in Highline. Today, medical and dental students at the Puget Sound Skills Center open the doors to real-life work experiences in a brand new Health Sciences Building. The Washington State Legislature funded this state-of-the-art facility in its 2015-2017 capital budget. Thanks to state funding and important partnerships, the new facility expands health career opportunities for high school students across four school districts. Grand Opening is September 22, 9 a.m.The grand opening will be celebrated in the new building’s auditorium on Friday, September 22 at 9 a.m. Speakers include state Senator Karen Keiser and Highline Superintendent Susan Enfield.
