When the Monticello Sages boys basketball team walks off the floor after tomorrow night's contest at Robert and Dorothy Miller Gymnasium, it will be the last time they do so before moving into the Arthur 'Buzz' Sievers Center next winter.
Superintendent Dr. Vic Zimmerman says it will certainly be the end of a great era of sports and activities in the gym.
'Buzz' as folks around Monticello affectionately refer to Sievers as, was honored by the recognition of having the gym named after him, although never seeking out the attention as Dr. Zimmerman points out, 'Buzz' does everything for the district because of his passion for the community and the kids.
The new Arthur 'Buzz' Sievers Center will feature a nice, new hardwood floor with the Monticello 'M' in the middle and Sages graphics around the gym. Dr. Zimmerman says the trends of floors have been fluid the last several years but now it seems the trend is a solid, single color so they will follow that trend.
