In April 2013 ,the Athletic Boosters presented to administration and the athletic department a long range vision for a new weight room project. The Athletic Boosters wanted to contribute more and selected the Weight Room Project as a project that would impact the most students at CSHS. After many meetings and a lot of fundraising, the Athletic Boosters announced in April 2014 that they would commit $25,000 to this project.
After monthly planning meetings with the athletic department and many planning sessions ,it was determined that this project would in fact happen. The plan was to completely gut the current weight room and start over: raising the ceiling , repainting, installing new flooring, a new improved sound system, a large screen TV for classroom instruction ,and complete replacement of all equipment and new rubber coated weights.
Demolition began in June 2014. A public sale of all the old equipment took place. Work continued throughout the summer with many contractors in and out.
Finally, all the new equipment was installed on August 12, 2014. What started as a brainstorming session was now a reality.
We are very proud to have been able to contribute to such a high student impact project!
