Sad Day on Elk River
Herbert Hoover High School-1963-2016/2018
September 17, 2018, 45 years after Herbert Hoover High School was built, Loftis & Son Construction crew started the demolition of a landmarked school that was destroyed in the 2016 flood. It was bittersweet with knowing that a school that housed not only tens of thousands of students, but way more memories is being demolished. The one part that has been positive is that by 2021 there will be a state of art school built that will make Elk River Proud. Many was on hand to watch the demolition, reminisce of their memories with fellow classmates, and to take a brick for a souvenir, and to witness a historical event. Herbert Hoover might be down the Elk River a few miles, but it will house the same students, same teachers, and the same Elk River Pride that brings us all together. Elk River Strong!!!
