CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Chandler High School is commemorating its 100th year with celebrations and new additions.

The school's ROTC instructor and his wife donated an electronic marquee.

"When you have a historic high school like Chandler High, we're celebrating our 100th year, a simple, plain-old electronic marquee just wouldn't really fit," Principal Larry Rother said. "Something like this really sets off Chandler High School."

Chandler High also has a new Freedom Circle, a dedication and monument to service.
