New sign dedicated at Ivy High School

FALLBROOK – On March 11, Ivy High School erected a new sign and held a dedication ceremony for it.

According to Ivy principal Melissa Marovich, "When Ivy High School moved to its current site in 1978, then-principal Harry Vix and a few students created the sign in the Fallbrook High woodshop. Mr. Vix had been a wood shop teacher before becoming the Ivy principal. The sign was bricked into place in 1979, where it stood until Ivy's 2014 remodel."

"By 2014, the Ivy sign was in pretty bad shape," Marovich explained. "It had split in half and was badly rotted."

"Marc Steffler, who spent 18 years as a teacher and principal at Ivy, gathered up the pieces of the sign for restoration. With help from retired teacher Paul Novak and retired woodshop teacher Bill Regal, the sign was repaired and set into place March 11 at Ivy High School."

Many retired Ivy staff members attended the dedication event for the new sign. "Mark Steffler shared some words of wisdom for the students and reminded them of the proud history of Ivy High School," said Marovich.
