Students, faculty, and members of the community turned out by the hundreds to join officials, including Vice President Joe Biden, in dedicating the new Joplin High School in Joplin, Missouri. The building replaces the old school that was destroyed in the May 22, 2011 tornado. 

Students set out the break a record, using 6.5 miles of ribbon in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Ribbon extended around the school, including running between rooftops.
