(ACORN) According to officials at the Ouachita River School District, the district is making some needed improvements that will make the district more efficient at being able to host various events and also give the school the ability of providing some much needed practice facilities for sports teams.
Superintendent Jerrry Strasner stated that the improvements made to the Acorn campus was done with no bonds being issued or having to be financed over a long period of time. In fact, the district was proud to have paid cash for the projects.
Most of the inside work done to the Mary Davis Gym, commonly known as the Old Gym, has been completed. The gym was built in the 1950’s.
The approximately $500,000 project, included an Indoor Hitting Cages, resurfacing of the gym floor, new air conditioning and remodeled bathrooms.
The Mary Davis Gym will see the most use for band and choir performances, amongst other events that will hold 500 to 600 people.
