The project is slated to be completed by the end of November and will include restrooms, a concession stand, a covered shelter area with tables, and storage area for the schools’ outdoor equipment.
The Athletic Boosters recently presented a $75,000 check to the school distrcit for the project,  “The school district has been great to work with and I am looking forward tot he completion of the project,” says Liz Lafferty, President of the WUHS Athletic Boosters.  Jarred Hall is the contractor for the project.
