Bay City Western High School

Bay City Western High School is a high school located at 500 Midland Road, Auburn, Michigan. Its mascot is the Warrior, and its colors are brown and gold. The school fight song consists of music from the march Winchester , with original words written for Western High. The entrance roads to the school are Bryant Boulevard and Noell Way, named in honor of the school district administrator and head of the school board at the time.HistoryWestern High School opened its doors in September 1973 after two years of construction. Overcrowding at Bay City Central and T. L. Handy High School was the original reason that Western was built. During this time the students who lived in Bay City would go to school in the morning from 7:00AM to 12:00 Noon; and the those outside of the city would go in the afternoon, from 12:00 Noon through 5:00PM. In 1973, new boundaries were established, with mostly everyone west of Two Mile Road attending Western High School. Seniors (and some juniors) were given the option to complete their education at Handy or Central. On the first day of school there were Handy kids on one side of the room and Central kids on the other side. By the end of the year they were all Western High Students. When the building opened, construction on some parts of the facility had not yet been completed. Some examples included the main hallway, the swimming pool, the football stadium, and the commons. There were student desks still in boxes in some parts of the building. In some cases students ate their lunches on top of carpet rolls in the commons that had not yet been installed. It has been claimed that, after Handy High School closed in 1990, two of its former students, now being forced to attend Western, went to their old school's parking lot and danced their own personal Homecoming, rather than attending Western's. At commencement that year former Handy students were permitted to wear their traditional red caps and gowns while Western students wore brown and gold.
