Hudson High goes high-tech for lunch

By Holley Nees - email

HUDSON, TX (KTRE) - Lunch time just got a whole lot better for Hudson High School students.

Student council members cut the ribbon on their $4 million dollar cafeteria. The facility has flat screen, high definition t-vs and wireless Internet so kids can use their laptops and cell phones at lunch. The principal says he's thrilled the high schoolers now have a place to study together even before and after school.

"We are very excited about this," said Donny Webb, the Hudson High School principal. "This is the first time that our high school has had their very own cafeteria. This is the first time our students will be able to walk to their cafeteria without having to walk in the rain."

The building is part of the district's bond project. Students will start eating in their new lunchroom Monday. And the district says they will be monitoring the content on those flatscreens.
