HANTERSVILLE, NC (QUEEN CITY NEWS) – Hundreds turned out to celebrate the opening of the new multi-million dollar athletic facility at Christ the King High School on Thursday.
The $6.6 million building includes a gym, locker rooms and a stage.
From the colors of the bleachers to the name itself, Hannah Cutlip had a hand in everything – sort of.
“We chose the logo; we chose the colors. We chose a mascot,” Hanna recalled.
Hannah was part of the first graduating class of 2011 at Christ the King High School in Huntersville; they had 29 classes.
She said they had to choose everything about the school because there were only a handful. Now it is much different.
“Honestly, it was just ‘wow,'” Hannah said.
The 22,000-square-foot building is a reminder of how much the school has grown, from 29 students in 2011 to about 400 today.
“It was humbling, but also, if this is what they’re doing in 10 years, what are they going to do in another 10,” Hannah said.

“I think it’s a place where the athletes will be proud to have home games,” Hanna said.
