The last time a new high school was opened in Jefferson, Lyndon Baines Johnson “LBJ” was President of the United States, and the gymnasium the Rams have played indoor sports in was built when Dwight D. Eisenhower “Ike” was in office. That’s about to change with the new Greene County High School, including a gymnasium, as well as Iowa Central Career Academy, set to open for the start of the 2020-21 school year.
The transition to the new high school, as well as moving the middle school to the south end of town where the high school has been located, is underway. Instead of competition for Greene County varsity volleyball, basketball, and wrestling, taking place in a 67 year old facility, the Rams will compete in a brand new gym with a state-of-the-art scoreboard/video board, and sound system. There will also be an interactive area near the gym entrance where the public can access information about past activities, teams, and individuals.
