Oak Ridge gym to grow

Oak Ridge High School’s last piece of the 2008 Measure Q bond measure, which pumped $50 million into district infrastructure projects, is a $5 million gym expansion currently under way.

The north wall of the gym will be pushed back 15 feet, so that 500 additional seats can be added. Plans call for the weight room to be expanded and modernized. A wrestling room large enough for two full-sized mats is also planned.

The Oak Ridge High School Community Foundation is once again partnering with the district, and will provide much of the necessary equipment, including wrestling mats, high performance weight training stations and, hopefully, an electronic video score board. Their funding goal is $265,000.

The foundation is also raising funds for classroom improvements, science and engineering programs, visual and performing arts programs, athletic field improvements and more. For more information visit orhsfoundation.com.
