School and community dignitaries signed a steel beam that will become part of the new field house at Southwest High School at a special ceremony in the school library, May 24.
Voters approved the athletic field house as part of the 2013 Capital Improvement Project. The scope of the project is to construct a new, single story 9,000 square foot, freestanding field house which will serve both boys and girls outdoor athletic teams with locker rooms, toilet and shower facilities, as well as coaches’ offices, a training room, laundry facilities and equipment storage.
The ceremony included music from Southwest High choral students and the jazz band.
Two plaques were presented to the school at the ceremony in memory of coaches John Church and Reginald Seastrunk.
Additionally, a special farewell reception for Dr. Ann Sutherland, former Fort Worth ISD Board of Education member, was hosted to celebrate her birthday and years of service on the board. The reception included cake and attendees singing “Happy Birthday” to Dr. Sutherland.
