The Osnaburg (Ohio) Local School District is building a $2.38 million health and wellness facility at East Canton High School in East Canton.
The Canton Repository reports that the 9,384-square-foot Foltz Fieldhouse will contain a 3,515-square-foot sports performance center, space for health care, locker rooms and what will be known as a team room. The new facility will be adjacent to the East Canton Foltz Stadium.
"This is a monumental project for East Canton schools," Superintendent Kevin Finefrock said. "Investing in the health and wellness of students and staff will lead to positive student outcomes, such as stronger connections to school and classmates, improved attendance, academic performance, resiliency and self-confidence."
Construction is expected to start in April and be completed in about six months.
All of the funding for the project has been privately raised, Finefrock said.
The facility is named in honor of area residents Dwain and Kathy Foltz, who have pledged donations for the facility.
Motter & Meadows Architects is the architect, and Olivieri Construction is the builder.
