The rocket in front of Northeast was stolen in 1991 and was never found. The new rocket was unveiled on August 22, 2016. The ceremony started at 8 am and was attended by the whole student body and many dignitaries including the superintendent of schools. Fund raising and donations of time and talents totaled over $60,000. The guy (Jason Lemon) in the black shirt and pants is the main man behind the whole idea and project. The rocket is 16 feet long and the tip is 22 feet high. The whole assembly weighs 10,000 pounds.
