Biography/History Notes

During the 1927-28 year, a manual arts building and one of the largest rural gymnasiums in Utah were erected. The next year a six hundred-seat auditorium was built, with a balcony being added later to handle an additional 250 people. In 1937, a two-story music building became part of the complex, joined to the main building and auditorium by a three-arched arcade and hallway. The first story of this addition consisted of five group practice rooms, a supply room and a director's office. The second story had a large band room and an instrument storage room.

Even with all this building over the years, a rapid increase in enrollment and activities required still more additions to the superstructure of the old hull. The original gym was not large enough, and a new one had to be started in 1955. Rather than destroy the old facility, it was converted into three stories of classrooms. Further modifications brought exciting changes to the music department in 1957, and by 1964 there was a new industrial arts building. By the summer of 1965, a connecting building between the administration and old gym buildings was completed, and things seemed very shipshape for some years to come. The progress at Cyprus High School has never ceased, and in the spring of 1974, plans were approved and construction began for one of the most modern and complete auditoriums in the area. The old auditorium was remodeled into a new home economics facility.

In the spring of 1978, contracts were awarded to construct a new science and ceramics building on the northwest corner of the campus and a new girls' gym on the southwest. The building was reconstructed in 1981. Students attended Brockbank Junior High until construction was completed in 1984.
